Placed on file.

Tlie following communication: 

Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, January 8, 1913. ^ 

To the Honorable the City Council: 

Gentliemen — At your meeting of De- 
cember 30tli, 1912, your Honorable Body 
passed an ordinance amending certain 
sections of Chapter LVI of The Chicago 
Code of 1911, and repealing certain other 
sections thereof. 

In Section 1 of this ordinance provis- 
ion is made for the changing of the title 
of Superintendent of Identification to 
Identification Expert. I am advised by 
the Civil Service Commission that this 
title properly should read Chief Iden- 
tification Expert. 

Paragraph 1915c of Section 5 of said 
ordinance creates the position of first 
class detective sergeant and provides the 
method of appointment of said first 



class detective sergeant, with the fol- 
lowing proviso: 

Provided, tliat the persons now hold- 
ing the position of detective sergeant 
through civil service examination, or as 
"holdovers", shall be and are hereby 
designated as first class detective ser- 
geants. , 

I assume it was the desire of your 
Honorable Body in this proviso to pro- 
tect all persons holding the position of 
detective sergeant in the Detective Bu- 
reau, whether assigned to that position 
from the Civil Service list of detective 
se'rgeants, patrol sergeants or desk ser- 
geants. Some years ago these three 
positions were eliminated from the Chi- 
cago Code and the general position of 
sergeant of police was created. Since 
that time men have been assigned indis- 
criminately from patrol sergeant's and 
desk sergeant's service to the Detective 
Bureau, with the result that today, as 
I am advised by the Chief of Police, 31 
sergeants in the Detective Bureau hold 
the position by virtue of appointment 
from the detective sergeants list or by 
virtue of being "holdovers" in the bu- 
reau, 17 hold their appointment by vir- 
tue of appointment from the desk ser- 
geants list and 17 by virtue of appoint- 
ment from the patrol sergeants list. 

In view of these facts, I would re- 
spectfully suggest the passage of the 
attached amendatory ordinance, without 
the usual reference to a committee. 
Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Unanimous consent was given for the 
consideration of the ordinance trans- 
mitted with the foregoing communica- 
tion. 

Aid. Richert moved to pass the said 
ordinance.

nance was passed, by yeas and nays as

shall be and hereby are designated as 
first class detective sergeants" and by 
substituting in lieu thereof the words 
^'provided, that the persons now holding

geants."

The following communication, which 
was referred to the Committee on 
Streets and Alleys, Taxation and Street 
Nomenclature : 

Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, January 8, 1913. j 

To the Honorable the City Council: 

Gentlemen — The Harbor and Subway 
Commission has again called my atten- 
tion to the necessity for early consid- 
eration of the problem presented by the 
sewer system in the district bounded by 
Luke Michigan, the Chicago River and 
12th street. 

In compliance with an order of your 
Honorable Body, January 24th, 1910, 
the Board of Local Improvements trans- 
mitted a report March 27th, 1911, and 
submitted questions for the considera- 
tion of your Honorable Body before a 
definite plan should be formulated for 
the reconstruction of the sewer sys- 
tem of the district in question. It is 
necessary that these questions be given 
early consideration in order that the es- 
sential features of a sewer system for 
the business district may be agreed 
upon, in anticipation of the work of the 
Subway Commission in the construction 
of a subAvay system. 

The uncertainty of continuing indefi- 
nitely the dilution method of disposing 
of sewage renders it imperative that a 
study be made by experienced engineers 
and a plan formula^ted and submitted to 
your Honorable Body for consideration. 

I would respectfully suggest that the 
report submitted by the Board of Local 
Improvements, prepared by the Super- 
intendent of Sewers, be taken from the 
files and referred to an appropriate com- 
mittee fpr early consideration and re- 
port. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor.

The following- yeto message: 

Office of the Mayoe, | 
Chicago, January 8, 1913. j 

'io tJic Honorable the City Council: 

Gentlemen — Under the authority con- 
ferred upon me by law, I hereby submit 
my veto severally as to each of the fol- 
lowing items of the annual appropriation 
bill, passed January 2, 1913, entitled 
"An ordinance making appropriation for 
corporate, school, public library and tu- 
berculosis sanitarium purposes for the 
fiscal year from January 1, 1913, to De- 
cember 31, 1913". 

Item 1 — In the title of said ordinance 
the word "appropriation" should be 
changed to "appropriations". This 
change is necessary in order that no 
question may be raised as to the num- 
ber of appropriations made in said or- 
dinance. 

I therefore recommend that the word 
"appropriation" be stricken out of the 
title in said ordinance and the word "ap- 
propriations" be substituted in lieu 
thereof. 

Item 2 — In Section 5 the words "un- 
paid bills" and "contract liabilities" ap- 
pear with quotation marks, which may 
limit the meaning of said words and 
might interfere with their application in 
some instances where they are intended 
to apply in the ordinance. 

I therefore recommend that Section 5 
of said ordinance be amended by strik- 
ing out the quotation marks which ap- 
pear in line 2 of said Section 5, as print- 
ed on page 3049 of said Journal. 

Item 3 — The appropriation for the 
City Council makes provision for 69 
aldermen at 12 months and 1 alderman 
at 9 months, instead of which there 
should be provision made for 67 alder- 
men at 12 months and 3 aldermen at 9 
months. 

I therefore recommend that the ordi- 
nance be a;mended by striking out the 
appropriation for the City Council as 
the same appears on page 3051 of said 
Journal and inserting in lieu thereof, 
the following words and figures: 

"CITY COUNCIL. 

Salaries and Wages — 
Aldermen (67), 

12 months at 

$3,000.00 , . .$201,000.00 



Aldermen ( 3 ) , 
9 months at 
$3,000.00.... 6,750.00 

Chairman, Com- 
mittee o n 
Finance . . . 3,000.00 



$210,750.00 
Less amount 
payable from 
Water Fund 42,150.00 



4-A $168,600.00". 

Item 4 — The contingent appropriation 
for the payment of the judgment ob- 
tained by the Village of Oak Park, City 
of Berwyn and Town of Cicero appear- 
ing on pages 3060-3061 of said Journal 
for the sum of $211,303.31, under Code 
designation of 22-T, should be deducted 
from the totals of the Comptroller's of- 
fice which appear on page 3061, for the 
reason that the appropriation is a con- 
tingent appropriation as appears by the 
wording of the same. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by inserting after 
line 22 on page 3061, the following 
words and figures: 

"Less contingent appro- 
priation as noted 211,303.31 



$608,283.33". 

Item 5 — The appropriation for the 
Board of Election Commissioners desig- 
nated as 25-r, $585.00, on page 3064 
of said Journal, is improperly stated for 
the reason that the appropriation for the 
payment of voting machines has been 
stricken out at the request of the Com- 
missioners. The item should therefore 
be made for the purpose intended by the 
Code designation. 

I therefore recommend that the said 
ordinance be amended by striking out 
the 2nd and 3rd lines on page 3064 of 
said Journal which read as follows: 

"25-F Voting machines and 
trucks — all items other 
than purchase of voting 
machines $585.00" 

and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing: 

"25-F Purchase of apparatus, 
machinery, vehicles and 
harness $585.00". 

Item 6 — Making the above change re- 
quires also that the item containing the 



3182 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January S, 19l3i 



total appropriation for the Board of 
Election Commissioners as appears on 
page 3064 of said Journal be amended. 

I therefore recommend that the said 
ordinance be amended by striking out 
the words: "Appropriated from Cor- 
porate Fund" in the 10th line of said 
page 3064, and inserting in lieu thereof 
the word "Total". 

Item 7 — The appropriation ordinance 
for the year 1912 proAdded for two senior 
clerks at $1,5Q0.00 each in the Depart- 
ment of Supplies. The present ordi- 
nance makes appropriation for but one 
senior clerk at $1,500.00. The Business 
Agent requests authority to employ a 
person having experience as a printer 
and familiar with qualities and prices 
of paper, etc., and asks that an addition- 
al appropriation be made for the same 
at a salary of $1,500.00. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by inserting after line 
34 on page 3065, the following: 

"Examiner of printing.... 1,500.00". 

Item 8 — The Civil Service Commission 
has requested that the title "Chief Buy- 
er" in the Department of Supplies be 
changed to "Head Buyer". 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
words and figures 

"Chief Buyer 2,400.00" 

in line 32 of page 3065 of said Journal 
and inserting in lieu thereof the words 
and figures 

"Head Buyer 2,400.00". 

Item 9 — The above alteration makes it 
necessary to change the totals which 
appear for said department on page 
3066. 

I therefore recommend that the said 
ordinance be amended by striking out 
the figures "$24,523.75" from the 7th 
line of page 3066 and inserting in lieu 
thereof the figures "$26,023.75"; also by 
striking out the figures "$12,261.87" 
from the 9th line of said page 3066 and 
inserting in lieu thereof "$13,761.87"; 
also by striking out the figures "$14,- 
259.37" from the 31st line of said page 
3066, and inserting in lieu thereof the 
figures "$15,759.37". 

Item 10 — The Civil Service Commis- 
sion requests that the appropriation for 
the Department of Police under the 
heading of — 



Salaries and Wages — 

"Assistant Inspectors of 
Moral Conditions, 5 at 
$1,800.00, 6 months .... 4,500.00" 
be stricken out, as the same appears as 
part of item 30-A on page 3067 of said 
Journal and re-appropriating for the 
same under an additional Code number 
of 30- S2 to be inserted in the appropriq,- 
tion for the Police Department, but to 
follow the appropriation under the item 
30-Sl as the same appears at page 3070 
of said Journal. 

I therefore recommend that the said 
ordinance be amended by striking out 
lines 7 and 8 of page 3067, which read 
as follows: 

"Assistant Inspectors of 
Moral Conditions, 5 at $1,- 
800,00, 6 months 4,500.00" 

and by inserting after the 13th line of 

page 3070 the following: 

"30-S2 Inspection of Moral Con- 
ditions, services of not 
to exceed 5 Assistant 
Inspectors as needed .. 4.500.00". 

Item 11 — The above alteration makes 
it necessary to change the total for ap- 
propriation 30-A. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out the 
17th line of page 3067 of said Journal, 
which reads as follows: 
"30-A $55,710.00'- 

and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing: 

"30-A $51,210.00". 

Item 12- -The appropriation for Sub- 
ordinate Commanding Officers in the Po- 
lice Department appearing on page 3067 
of said Journal can be more particularly 
itemized by designating the numbers of) 
captains, lieutenants and sergeants. i 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
19 to 24 appearing on page 3067 of said 
Journal and inserting in lieu thereof the 
following : I 

"Salaries and Wages —

Item 13— The Civil Service Commis- 
sion request that the title of "Identifi- 
cation Expert" be changed to "Chief 
Identification Inspector" and that the 
title of "Finger Print Operator" be 
changed to "Assistant Identification In- 
spector". 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
4 and 5, appearing on page 3068 of said 
Journal, vs^hich read as follows: 

"Identification Expert" $2,250.00 

Finger Print Operator 1,200.00" 

and insert in lieu thereof the following: 

"Chief Identification Inspec- 
tor $2,2.50.00 

Assistant Identification In- 
spector 1,200.00". 

Item 14 — The appropriation of $10,- 
000.00 for Substitute Police Operators, 
under designation of 30-A7, as printed 
on page 3068 of said Journal is improp- 
erly worded. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out the 
word "worked" in line 25 on page 3067 
of said Journal, and inserting in lieu 
thereof the word "needed". 

Item 15 — The General Superintendent 
of Police informs me that there is no 
necessity for the services of a Head 
Matron. 

I concur in his recommendation that 
the appropriation for Head Matron be 
eliminated. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out line 
10 of page 3069 of said Journal. 

Item 16 — If the last mentioned amend- 
ment is adopted it necessitates the 
amending of the total appropriation for 
30-All, and also the total for the de- 
partment as appears on pages 3069 and 
3070 respectively. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out from 
line 20 on page 3069 of said Journal the 
figures "156,994.00" and iiiserting in 
lieu thereof the figures "155,674.00". 
Also by striking out from line 14 on 
page 3070 of said Journal the figures 
"$6,695,568.64" and inserting in lieu 
thereof the figures "$6,694,248.64". 

Item 17 — Appropriation for the con- 
struction of new buildings for the De- 
partment of Health in the sum of $375,- 
000.00 is made on page 3146 of said 
Journal. This appropriation properly 



should appear as a part of the appro- 
priations for the Health Department at 
the end of the appropriations for tlie 
department. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out 
line 12 on page 3082, which reads as 
follows : 

"Total $723,211.2(r', 

and inserting in lieu thereof the fol- 
lowing :

Item 18 — The appropriation for extra 
salaries of Boiler Inspectors and Help- 
ers, which appears on page 3083 of said 
Journal, is improperly worded. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out 
lines 11, 12 and 13 on page 3083 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: 

"Ebitra salaries for Boiler 
Inspectors and Helpers for

Item 19 — The appropriation under 
Code designation 50-All for the Board 
of Local Improvements, appearing at 
the foot of page 3087, is improperly 
worded. 



3184 COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out from 
the last two lines on page 3087 of said 
Journal the following words: "contin- 
gent upon sale of bonds". 

Item 20— The Board of Local Improve- 
ments has withdrawn its request for the 
appropriation of $5,000.00, which ap- 
pears on page 3094 of said Journal. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out lines 
26 to 35, inclusive, on page 3094 of ♦said 
Journal which read as follows: 

"For the payment of Public 
Benefits Old Law War- 
rants where rebates are 
due and unpaid on ac- 
count of unpaid public

Item 21. The last appropriation ap- 
pearing on page 3094 for the sum of 
$4,000.00, for 94th street sewer, is im- 
properly worded. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
last two lines on page 3094 of said Jour- 
nal, which read as follows: 

"Provisional appropriation, 
94th street sewer from Jef- 
fery avenue to Anthony ave- 
nue '. . • . 4,000.00", 

and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing:

Item 22 — If your Honorable Body con- 
curs in my recommendation, striking out 
said item of $5,000.00 for the Board of 
Local Improvements, appearing on page 



January B,- 1013. 

3094, which has been withdrawn by that 
department, it requires the amending of 
the total appropriation for the depart- 
ment. 

The necessity of amending said total 
appropriation, as it appears on page 

3095, is also required by the amending 
in the item 50-All, appearing on page 
3087. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
26, 27 and 28 on page 3095 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: 

"$846,957.58

Item 23 — Item 51-R of appropriations 
under head of "City Real Estate and 
Buildings" is improperly worded. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
33 and 34 on page 3095 of said Journal, 
which read as follows: 
"51-R Taxes, special assess- 
ments on city prop- 
erty and public ben- 
efits 25,000.00", 

and inserting in lieu thereof, the follow- 
ing: 

"51-R Taxes, and special as- 
sessments on city 
property 25,000.00". 

Item 24 — The appropriation for Play- 
ground Directors is incorrect. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
19th line on page 3096 of said Journal, 
which reads as follows: 

"Playground Directors, 3 at 

$1,080.00 5,100.00", 

and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing: 

"Playground Directors, 5 at 

$1,020.00 5,100.00". 

Item 25 — The appropriation for As- 
sistant Playground Directors is also in- 
correct. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
23d and 24th lines on page 3096 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: '

ing :

rectors, 11 for 2 months at 

$60.00 per month 1,320.00 . 

Item 26— The appropriation for Bath- 
ing Beach Director at the 39th street 
bathing beach is also incorrect. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
6 and 7 on page 3097 of said Journal, 
which read as follows: 

"Bathing Beach Director, 39th 
Street ,Bathing Beach for 
3% months at $80.00 per 

month 266.00", 

and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing: 

"Bathing Beach Director, 39th 
Street Bathing Beach for 
3 ■ 1/3 months at $80.00 
per month 266.00". 

Item 27— The heading "Building Of- 
fice and Storeroom" appearing near the 
top of page 3098 was inserted by mis- 
take and should be stricken out. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
.2nd line on page 3098 of said Journal. 
~ Item 28— $250,000.00 is appropriated 
for Bathing Beaches and Bathing Pools. 
This appears at page 3146 of said Jour- 
nal. This appropriation, however, prop- 
erly should be placed under the appro- 
priation for Special Park Commission. ^ 
I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
13th line on page 3098 of said Journal, 
which reads as follows: 

-Total $132,170.58". 

and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing: 

"For acquiring and improv- 
ing Bathing Beaches 
(to be paid from pro- 
ceeds of Bathing Beach

Total $382,170.58". 

Item 29 — The appropriation for la- 
borers under the head of "Salaries and 
Wages" in the Department of Electricity 
is incorrectly worded. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 



10 and 11 on page 3099 of said Jour- 
nal, which read as follows: 
"Laborers, 3, 365 days; 10, 

300 days, at $2.50 per day 7,162.50", 
and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing: 

"Laborers at $2.50 per day. 7,162.50". 

Item 30— The appropriation for the 
maintenance of gas lamps in the Depart- 
ment of Electricity, on page 3100, is in- 
correctly worded. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out line 
12 on page 3100, which reads as fol- 
lows : 

"Labor necessary for main- 
taining gas lamps 55,800.00", 

and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing: 

"Lamp lighters — lighting, 
cleaning and extinguish- 
ing gas lamps, at 1 cent 
per light per day, and car- 
ing for mantle gas lamps 
at 10 cents per lamp per 
month or by contract. . . 55,800.00 ' 

Item 31 — The City Electrician has re- 
quested that appropriation for electrical 
current of $164,250.00 under Code desig- 
nation "80-O" be increased to "$192,- 
000:00" and that the appropriation for 
rental of gasoline lamps under Code 
designation "80-05" be increased to 
"240,000:00". This change is made nec- 
essary by the increase in the number of 
electric lamps to be taken care of. I 
concur in his request. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
3 to 11 inclusive, on page 3101 of said 
Journal, and inserting in lieu thereof 
the following: 

"For electrical cur- 

80-O rent $192,000.00

Item 32 — If the last recommendation 
is adopted, it will be necessary to change 
the total for the Department of Elec- 
tricity, as the same appears at the bot- 
tom of page 3101 of said Journal. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out 
from the last line on page 3101 of said 
Journal, the figures "$1,682,503.47" and 
inserting in lieu thereof the figures 
"$1,730,253.47". 

Item 33— The City Electrician re- 
quests that the portion of the appro- 
priation under the heading of "Construc- 
tion" contained in lines 12 to 17 inclu- 
sive, on page 3101 of said Journal, be 
amended so as to itemize the appropria- 
tion therein contained, of $18,000.00 for 
salaries and wages. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out 
lines 12 to 17 inclusive, on page 3101 of 
said Journal, and inserting in lieu there- 
of the following: 

"Construction. 
Bureau of Construction — 
Salaries and Wages — 

Foremen of Linemen, 2 

at $1,680.00 per 3^ear...$ 3,360.00

Hire of teams, horses and 

carts 5,000.00 

Material, apparatus, etc.. 20,000.00 



$43;000.00". 

Item 34 — The appropriation for fuel 
and power for the Bureau of City 
Hall, appearing on line 2 of page 3107, 
is incorrectly worded. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out the 
word "reserved" in line 2, on page 3107 
of said Journal, and inserting in lieu 
thereof the word "reserve". 

Item 35 — The notation concerning the 
cleaning of rights of way of Traction 
Companies, appearing in lines 24, 25 and 
26, on page 3132 of said Journal, is 
misleading in that it deducts the amount 
to be reimbursed from the total appro- 
priation. The amount should not he so 
deducted. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out 
lines 24 to 27 inclusive, on page 3132 of 
said Journal, which read as follows : 



"Cleaning rights-of-Avay 
of Traction Compa- 
nies, to be reim- 
bursed by Companies. 277,040.00 

$2,358,11^50"^ 
and inserting in lieu thereof: 
" (Cleaning rights-of-way 
of Traction Companies, 
to be reimbursed by 
Companies to the ex- 
tent of $277,040.00)'*. 
Item 36 — The notation concerning the 
reimbursement of the City by the Trac- 
tion Companies for cleaning snow from 
streets is incorrectly given in the 3rd 
and 4th lines on page 3133 of said 
Journal. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out the 
3rd and 4th lines on page 3133 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: 

"Proportionate share of cost of clean- 
ing streets, to be reimbursed by 
Traction Companies." 
and inserting in lieu thereof: 

"Proportionate share of cost of clean- 
ing snow from streets, to be reim- 
bursed by Traction Companies." 

Item 37 — The appropriation for the 
removal of snow in the 1st ward is im- 
properly itemized, due to the fact that 
the appropriation last year was made in 
two parts. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out lines ' 
5 to 10 inclusive, on page 3133 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: 
"Laborers not to 

exceed $2.00 per 

day, and Section 

Foremen at $2.75

Item 38— The same objection applies 
to a similar appropriation for the re- 
moval of snow in the 18th ward. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out 
lines 14 to 19 inclusive, on page 3133 of 
said Journal, which read as follows: 
"(Laborers not to ex- 
ceed $2.00 per day

Item 39— The same objection applies 
to a similar appropriation for the re- 
moval of snoAV in the 21st and 22nd 
wards. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out 
lines 39 to 44 inclusive, on page 3133 of 
said Journal, which read as follows: 
"Laborers not to ex- 
ceed $2.00 per day

Item 40— The item 206-A3, appropria- 
tions for "Street or Alley Improvement 
or Repairs, including Oiling of Mac- 
adam Streets.", appearing at page 3136 
of said Journal, is improperly worded. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out 
lines 24 to 32 inclusive, on page 3136 
of said Journal, which read as follows: 

"Pavers, Steam Roller 
Engineers and jNIe- 
chanics at not to ex- 
ceed union scale, La- 
borers and Watch-

and inserting in lieu thereof the follow-

cial work, not to ex-

Item 41 — Owing to the fact that the 
amount for which the City is to be re- 
imbursed for street cleaning by the Trac- 
tion Companies was deducted by mis- 
take, as above mentioned, from the total 
appropriated for the Bureau of Streets 
for ward work, it is necessary to change 
the totals as they appear on page 3137. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi-

nance be amended by striking out the 
oth line on page 3137 of said Journal, 
which reads as follows: 
"Total Bureau . o f 

Streets $3,842,169.85", 

and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing: 

"Total $4,119,209.85". 

Item 42— The item for the 
"Committee on Recreation 
Piers, Bathing Beaches 
and Boat Landings. 
For establishment of 
bathing beaches and 

bathing pools $250,000.00", 

appearing at page 3146 of said Journal, 
should be stricken out for the reason 
that same has by amendment heretofore 
suggested by me been inserted in the ap- 
propriations for the Special Park Com- 
mission after the item 

"60-X $18,230.00", 

appearing at page 3098 of said Journal. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
16, 17 and 18, on page 3146 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: 
"Committee on Recreation Piers, Bath- 
ing Beaches and Boat Landings. 
For establishment of 
bathing beaches and 
bathing pools $250,000.00". 

Item 43 — The appropriation for the 
Committee on Harbors, Wharves and 
Bridges, which appears on page 3146, 
for the construction of an outer harbor, 
should be transferred to the Harbor and 
Subway Commission appropriations. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
19, 20 and 21, on page 3146 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: 
"Committee on Harbors, Wharves and 
Bridges. 
For the construction 
of an outer harbor 
(bonds to be issued 
in denominations of 

$100.00 each) 1,000,000.00". 

Item 44 — The appropriation for the 
reconstruction and extension of bath 
houses and contagious disease hospital, 
which appears on page 3146 of said Jour- 
nal under the heading "Department of 
Health", has by amendment heretofore 
recommended by me been inserted at the 
end of the appropriations for the De- 
partmoit of Health, appearing on page 
3082. 



I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
24 to 32 inclusive, on page 3146, which 
read as follows : 

"Department of Health.

tension of bath, 16th

Item 45 — The appropriation for engi- 
neering and clerical service in connec- 
tion with widening West 12th street and 
Michigan avenue, which appears on page 
3146 under the heading "Board of Local 
Improvements", should be stricken out, 
as the same already appears in said ordi- 
nance at the bottom of page 3087. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
33 to 38, inclusive, on page 3146, which 
read as follows: 

"Board of Local Improvements. 
For engineering and cler-

clerical services at 
$100.00 per month 10,000.00". 

Item 46 — The summary at the top of 
page 3147 is unnecessary. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out lines 
1 to 8 inclusive, on page 3147 of said 
Journal, which read as follows:

Item 47 — In the appropriations for 
sinking funds and interest on bonds, ap- 
pearing on page 3148 of said Journal, 
there has been no provision made for 
bathing beach bonds and harbor con- 
struction bonds. I have had the Comp- 
troller figure the amounts necessary for 
same. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out the 
appropriations made under the head of 
Sinking Funds, on page 3148 of said 
Journal, and inserting in lieu thereof 
the following: 

"SINKING FUNDS.

Loss and cost in collect- 
ing taxes for Sinking 
Funds and interest on 

bonds 140,396.25 

Total $2,280,621.25" 



Item 48 — Under the appropriations for 
salaries and wages for Harbor and Sub- 
way Commission, on page 3149, the ordi- 
nance provides for two commissioners 
at $12,000.00 per year and one at 
$4,000.00. In case "the City Engineer 



should for any I'eason cease to be a 
member of said commission this appro- 
priation would be inadequate. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out 
lines 4 and 5, on page 3149 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: 
"2 Commissioners at $12,- 

000.00 $24,000.00 

1 Commissioner at $4,- 

000.00 4,000.00", 

and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing: 

"3 Commissioners at $12,- 

000.00 $36,000.00", 

Item 49 — In cas*? the above amend- 
ment is made it will be necessary to 
change the totals of the appropriations 
for Harbor and Subway Commission. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out the 
figures "$126,600.00" in line 12, on page 
3149 of said Journal, and inserting in 
lieu thereof the figures "$134,600.00". 

Also by striking out the figures 
"$184,000.00" appearing in line 23 on 
said page 3149 of said Journal, and in- 
serting in lieu thereof the figures 
"$192,000.00". 

•Item 50 — The appropriation for the 
construction of a harbor, as the same 
appears in the last two lines of page 
3149, is improperly made. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
last two lines on page 3149 of said Jour- 
nal, which read as follows: 
"Contingent on sale of 
bonds, $5,000,000.00, 
to be expended in 1913 1,000,000.00", 
and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing : 

"For acquiring sites and 
constructing protec- 
t i o n breakwaters, 
docks and piers, pay- 
able from the pro- 
ceeds of Harbor Con- 
s t r u c t i o n Bonds ; 
amount authorized to 
be expended in 1913 . .$1,000,000.00". 
Item 51— Owing to the fact that the 
appropriation for the City Council has 
been changed by an amendment, it is 
necessary to change the amount appro- 
priated from the water fund for that 
purpose. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 



3190 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 8, 1913. 



ligmes '-$12,450.00" in line o, on page 
3150 of said Journal, and inserting m 
lieu thereof the figures ''$42,150.00". 

Item 52 — The appropriation from the 
water fund for the Board of Local Im- 
provements, appearing on page 3152 of 
said Journal, for clerK to handle refund 
vouchers for laying water service pipes, 
is incorrectly worried, 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
word "'voucher" in line 33, on page 3152 
of said Journal, and inserting m lieu 
thereof the word •"vouchers". 

Item 53. The appropriation for "Me- 
chanical Assistant^', under the heading 
of "Water Works bhops and Repairs , 
appearing on pages 310« and 3109 of said 
Journal, is incorrect, inasmuch as the 
said assistant was advanced after civil 
service examination during the year 
1912, so that his salary now is $1,460.00. 

1 therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
figures "$1,200.00" m line 3, on page 
3109 of said Journal, and inserting in 
lieu thereof the figures "$1,460.00". 

Item 54. The change last made neces- 
sitates the changnig of the totals in 
said department. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
figures "$30,466 .55" m line 10, on page 
3169 of said Journal, and inserting in 
lieu thereof the figures "$30,726.55"; 
also by striking out the figures 
"$6,648,550.41" in line 13, on page 3170, 
and inserting in lieu thereof the figures 
"$6,648,810.41". 

Item 55 — In the appropriations for 
the Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium 
on page 3172 the total estimated as- 
sessed valuation of property in the City 
of Chicago for purposes of taxation is 
incorrectly stated. 

I therefore recommend that said ordi- 
nance be amended by striking out the 
figures "$945,000.00" in the last line on 
page 3172 of said Journal, as the same 
appear before the word ' at", and insert- 
ing in lieu thereof the figures 
"$945,000,000.00". 

Item 56 — The appropriation for pa- 
trolmen in the Department of Police, as 
the same appears in Code designation 
^0-A2, at page 3067 of the said Journal, 
does not designate the total number of 
patrolmen. 

I therefore recommend that the or- 
dinance be amended by striking out 



Item 58 — Because of the amendment 
to the appropriation for sinking funds 
lines 25 to 30 inclusive, on page 3067, 
which read as follows: 

"Patrolmen. 

Patrolmen, first 

grade, at $1,320 after 

two years' service; 

second grade, at 

$1,000, for second 

year of service; third 

grade, at $900, for 

first year of service. 

30-A2 4,547,000.00", 

and inserting in lieu thereof: 
"Patrolmen. 

3,550 Patrolmen, first 

grade, at $1,320 after 

two years' service; 

second grade, at 

$1,000, for second 

year of service; third 

grade, at $900, for 

first year of service. 
30- A2 4,547,000.00". 

Item 57 — Tlie number of first class 
detective sergeants appropriated for is 
62, as 'appears on line 37 of page 3067 
of said Journal. The number actually 
in service is 65. 

I therefore recommend that the fig- 
ures "62" after the words "First Class 
Detective Sergeants", in line 37 on said 
page 3067 of said Journal, be stricken 
out and that the figures "65" be in- 
serted in lieu thereof; also that the fig- 
ures "96,100.00" in line 40 of said page 
3067 be stricken out and the figures 
"100,750.00" be inserted in lieu thereof; 
also that the figures "663,875.00" in line 
47 on said page 3067 be stricken out and 
the figures "668,525.00" be substituted 
therefor. 

This change necessitates the altera- 
tion of the totals for the Police Depart- 
ment which have already been altered 
by amendment recommended in item 16. 
If the three changes recommended in 
this item are made therefor, it will be 
necessary to reconsider the vote by- 
which the amendment of the total of 
the Police Department as it was adopted 
on my recommendation in item 16, and 
to change the total to "$6,698,898.64", 
and in that event I recommend that 
instead of the amendment so adopted, 
the said ordinance be amended by strik- 
ing out from line 14 on said page 3070 
of said Journal the figures "$6,695,- 
568.64" and inserting in lieu thereof the 
figures "$6,698,898.64".

as the same appears at page 3148 of 
said Journal, it becomes necessary to 
change the appropriation for the item of 
interest on bonded indebtedness under 
the Code designation 21-P, as same ap- 
pears on page 3059 of said Journal. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking out the 
figures "$1,080,005.00" in line 28 on 
page 3059 of said Journal and inserting 
ill lieu thereof the figures "$1,229,- 
285.00"; also by striking out the fig- 
ures "$1,305,005.00" in line 31 on said 
page 3059 of said Journal and insert- 
ing in lieu thereof the figures "$1,454,- 
285.00". 

Item 59— It is necessary by reason of 



the changes recommended to alter the 
recapitulations as the same appear on 
pages 3173, 3174 ana 3175 of said 
Journal. 

I therefore recommend that said or- 
dinance be amended by striking there- 
from the recapitulation of appropria- 
tions from corporate purposes fund, ap- 
pearing on pages 3173 and 3174 of said 
Journal; also the recapitulation of ap- 
propriations from water fund, as the 
same appears on page 3174 of said Jour- 
nal; also the recapitulation of appro- 
priations for all purposes which appear 
on page 3175 of said Journal, and in-

I respectfully suggeSkt that the vote by 
which these various items were passed 
he reconsidered and that the foregoing- 
recommendations be severally concurred 
in by your Honorable Body and that the 
ordinance be amended in accordance 
Til ere with without the usual reference 
to a committee. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Riehert moved to reconsider the 
vote by Avhich the said items of said 
Appropriation Bill, vetoed by His Honor, 
the Mayor, were passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Riehert moved to concur in the 
recommendations of His Honor, the 
Mayor, and to substitute for said ve- 
toed items of said Appropriation Bill, in 
each and every case the respective items 
recommended 'in the said veto message. 

The motion prevailed, by yeas and 
nays as follows :

ALSO, 

The following communication: 

Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, January 8, 1913. \ 

To the EonoraUe the City Council: 

Gentlemen — T have submitted a mes- 
sage to your Honorable Body vetoing 
certain items in the appropriation ordi- 

i nance passed January 2, 1913. The 
amendments suggested by me have been 
acted upon. 

Section one of said ordinance provides 
that twenty per cent (20%) of the sal- 
aries and wages withheld from the em- 
ployes shall be paid them only in the 
event that the General Assembly gives 

I relief by additional legislation increas- 

'j ing the city's revenues. 

4 



It occurs to me, however, that as the 
section is worded, in the event the Leg- 
islature should not give this relief (al- 
though I am fully confident it will do 
so) and the City Council should decide 
to issue bonds for corporate purposes to 
meet the deficiency and the same should 
be approved on a referendum by the 
voters, the Comptroller might not be 
held authorized to pay the proportion of 
the salary withheld from the city em- 
ployes. 

I have prepared an ordinance amend- 
ing said Section One so as to make pro- 
vision therefor. I also include therein 
another change excluding from the re- 
ductions the "Capital Account for the 
Restoration of Street Openings." This 
change has been requested by the Comp- 
troller. 

I respectfully recommend that said 
amendatory ordinance, transmitted here- 
with, be passed without the usual. refer- 
ence to a Committee. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison. 

Mayor. 

L'lianimous consent was given for the 
consideration of the ordinance submit- 
ted with the foregoing communication. 

Aid. Riehert moved to pass said ordi- 
nance. 

The motion prevailed and said or-

porate purposes, in either of which I 
events, but contingent on the happen-

i The following is said preliminary re- 
; ])ort : 



Citicago, December 23, 1912. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City 
of Chicago in City Council AssemUed: 

Your Committee on Streets and Al- 
leys, Taxation and Street Nomencla- 
ture, to whom was referred the matter 
of investigating alleged inequalities and 
discriminations in the administration of 
the revenue system provided by law and 
to report what, if any, improvements 
m.ay be suggested in the existing law. 
begs leave to submit the following pre- 
liminary report: 

Right at the beginning your Commit- 
tee wishes to state that from its inves- 
tigations it appears that the principal 
cause for complaint must be sought in 
the inherent weaknesses of the revenue 
law rather than in the administration 
of the same by our taxing boards. 

States like Massachusetts, Ohio, Min- 
nesota, Wisconsin and Michigan have re- 
vised and amended their revenue laws 
so as to bring them up to date, and to 
m-ake it possible to spread an equital)Ie 
assessment. 

We will point out a few weaknesses 
of our revenue law: For instance, mort- 
gages are subject to taxation, and the 
records in the Recorder's office show 
that there were ,$30.0,000,000 of mort- 
gages recorded in that office last year, 
but there Avere not $100,000 assessed for 
taxation; and you could scarcely blame 
a person for not scheduling for assess- 
ment a mortgage he possesses. For il- 
lustration : If a man has $1,000 and loans 
it on a mortgage at 5 per cent, his re- 
turn is $50 per year; if he schedules 
the mortgage for assessment his taxes 
will be $20 per year; in other words, 
almost half of his income will go for 
taxes. 

Now, the State Tax Commission of 
Minnesota recommended the exemption 
of mortgages from taxation, but re- 
quired that all mortgages be registered 
at a fee of one-half of 1 per cent. This 
method would result in greater revenue 
to the state, as all mortgages would be 
forced to pay a tax which would not be 
confiscatory. 

Another weakness in the revenue law 
is the method of assessing railroad 
property. Some of it is assessed by 
the State Board of Equalization, and the 
rest by the local assessors. The rail- 
' roads make a return of the value of 



3222 



EEl'OETS OF COMMITTEES.

their properties on schedules in place of 
result is that owing to this system of 
assessing railroad property, it is im- 
possible for the assessors to arrive at 
the value of the property as accurately 
as they can estimate the value of prop- 
erty owned by individuals where such 
property is placed on general tax war- 
rants. 

A still further Aveakness in the reve- 
nue law is the rate as it is now made 
np. Some years ago the Legislature 
passed the so-called Juul law, which 
fixed the rate at $5.00 on each $100 of 
the assessed value. Three years ago, 
when the Legislature changed the as- 
sessed valuation of property from one- 
fifth of the full value to one-third of 
the full value, so as to permit the City 
to bond itself $15,000,000 more, the peo- 
ple were told that it would not make 
any difference in their tax bills; that 
the rate would be reduced from $5.00 
to $3.00 on each $100 of the assessed 
value; so that if you divided the $100 
by five and multiplied by five the tax 
would be $1.00; if you divided by $3.00 
and multiplied by three, you got the 
same result, but nothing was said about 
that part of the rate that was outside 
of the Juul law; that is, the state tax, 
school building tax, and all bond issues. 
The rate in the West Town for this 
year is $5.37; $2.37 of that is outside 
of the Juul law and is running against 
a third of tlie full value of all taxable 
properties instead of against one-fifth. 
In other words, if a man owns a piece 
of property worth $10,000 it increases 
his taxes $31.€0 per year, and it is the 
principal reason for the heavy increase 
in |;axes. 

Other matters we might call attention 
to arc the assessment of capital stock of 
corporations, moneys in bank and the 
exemption of property. 

While this Council has no power to 
regulate the assessment of property, we 
think it is the duty of a body repre- 
senting 2,500,000 people who are pay- 
ing $70,000,000 in taxes annually into 
the treasury, to recommend to the State 
Legislature such amendments to the rev- 
enue law as will make it possible to 
spread an equitable assessment on all 
taxable property. 

What has been said with reference to 
existing defects of the law applies with 
additional force to the assessment of 
real estate owned by railroads and 
''held" by them for "right of Avay," This 



includes, according to the constructior.l . 
of our Supreme Court, all buildings alonoi r. 
the "right of way," All such real estate' -. 
is assessed by the State Board of Equal-i 
ization as "railroad track" and its value . 
is listed and taxed in the several coun-^ 
ties, etc, in the proportion that the . 
length of the main track in such countyi 
etc., bears to the whole length of thi 
road in this state, j 

All real estate owned by railroads, in-! 
eluding stations and buildings, otherl 
than that denominated "railroad track,'k 
is assessed by the local assessor in each 
county, the same as similar property 
belonging to individuals. 

The distinction thus made in the 
method of valuation of real estate has 
had but one result. It has made pos- 
sible the most glaring discrimination in 
the assessment of real estate in favor 
of railroads. 

The method employed by the State 
Board of Equalization embraces three 
distinct factors: 

1. Main track and buildings, 

2. Second main track. 

3. Side or turnout track. 

The Illinois Central Railroad Company 
is covered by a provision of the consti- 
tution which exacts of the company an- 
nually a percentage of its gross income 
for purposes of taxation, and this com- 
pany does not, therefore, come within 
the scope of our revenue law. 

For the purpose of serving as an act- 
ual demonstration of how the law works, 
we have taken from the official report 
of the State Board of Equalization for 
the year 1911, the last available assess- 
ment made, the assessed valuation of 
the main track and buildings on right 
of way reported by the following rail- 
roads, which own our great passenger 
and freight terminals:

Company.

The assessed valuation for second 
main track and side or turnout track 
only reflects the foregoing procedure iu 
a more pronounced form. It is through 
such methods, sanctioned by law, that 
a great area of the most valuable real 
estate m tiie city is permitted to escape 
the buraen of taxation that individuals 
are made to bear. Without a lengthy 
commentary on the figures herewith pre- 
sented, it is only necessary to say that 
under the workings of our revenue law 
that railroad will have the smallest 
assessed valuation standing against it 
in Cook County, which has the longest 
number of miles of tracks outside of 
Cook County. Your Committee does not 
deem it' within its province to argue 
whether or not the prevailing method 
can be reconciled Avith the constitution 
which says that the General Assembly 
shall provide a revenue according to 
valuation so that every person or cor- 
poration shall pay a tax in proportion 
to the value of his, her or its property. 
We merely call attention to this fact 
and to the annually increasing burden 
that the present method of valuing 
"railroad track'" is bound to cast upon 
the great number of individual taxpay- 
ers. 

As a remedy your committee begs 
leave to recommend the following: 

1. All real estate, including buildings 
owned by railroads, in Cook County, 
shall be assessed by our local tax boards 
in the same manner that the real estate 
owned by individuals is now assessed. 

2. The actual structure of the rail- 
road, including roadbed, ties, rails, lo- 
comotives and cars and capital stock, 
shall be assessed by the State Board of 
Equalization or some commission to be 
created by law, which shall consist of a 
limited number of members to be elected 
or appointed, as the case may be. 

Your Committee further recommends 



the adoption of this report and that the 
Law Department be directed to prepare 
a draft of an act in accordance with 
the recommendations herein contained. 

In conclusion we beg leave to state 
that our labors are only partially com- 
pleted and that a more complete report 
may be expected as soon as the figures 
for the present year have been compiled 
and are available.

Chicago, January 8, 1913. 
To tlte Mayor and Aldermen of the City 
of Chicago in City Council Assembled: 

Pursuant to the order attached here- 
to (referred December 9, 1912, page 
2646) ), the Committee on Buildings and 
€ity Hall has made an investigation of 
the facts in the matter of the construc- 
tion of the building known as the Home 
Theater, located at 1539 Milwaukee ave- 
nue, and the collapse of the roof of said 
building on December 9tli, 1912. 

In making the investigation the com- 
mittee took 850 typewritten pages of 
testimony, the hearing occupying about 
four days. Among the witnesses heard 
by the committee w^ere Raphael Gold- 
stein, the owner; Abe Goldstein and 
Meyer Goldstein, his sons; David S. 
Klafter, the architect for the building; 
Joseph Klafter, his brother, and a 
draughtsman in his office; Philip F. 
Jeekel, his building superintendent; 
Henry Ericsson, Commissioner of Build- 
ings; Robert Knight, Deputy Commis- 
' sioner of Buildings; Edward F. Koel- 
ling, chief inspector in the Department 
of Buildings; J. Norman Jensen, archi- 
tectural engineer in the Department of 
Buildings; Peter F. Hoey, secretary of 
I the department; Frank DeLaby, Harry 
B. McCoy, William J. Oehlsen, David 
Williams, Charles W. Wagner and John 
Clarkson, inspectors or former inspec- 
i tors in the Department of Buildings; F. 
I E. Davidson, W. R. Patterson and Na- 
I than Ronnenberg, engineers; F. J. 
Koepke, Julius Floto and Harry W. 
Rocs, connected with the firms who fig- 
ured on the steel for the building, and 
E. F. West, representing the contractors 
who put the concrete roof on the build- 
ing. 

In making the investigation, the com- 
mittee sought light on two general prop- 
ositions : 

First — Who was responsible for the 



construction of tiic roof in a manner 
which did not conform to the ap- 
proved plans and to the building 
ordinances ; and. 

Second — ^^Vho was responsible for the 
continued maintenance of the roof 
in its dangerous condition after that 
condition was discovered to be pres- 
ent? 

That the rool of the building in ques- 
tion Avas constructed in a manner con- 
trary to the approved plans and the 
building ordinances of the city was ad- 
mitted by all. In the judgment of the 
committee, the responsibility for tnat 
violation rests for the most part on 
David S. Klafter, the supervising archi- 
tect, and on Mr. Raphael Goldstein, the 
owner, although it also rests on the De- 
partment of Buildings. 

Stated very briefly, some of the facts 
which have led the committee to this 
conclusion, as they appeared to the com- 
mittee from the evidence, are as fol- 
lows: 

1 — Mr. Klafter presented plans to the 
department calling for a light roof, 
built of wood, which was deliber- 
ately done by him contrary to his 
clear understanding of the ordi- 
nance requirements. His endeavor 
to justify this was entirely unsatis- 
factory to the committee. 

2 — These plans were amended on their 
face in the Building Department by 
striking out the parts showing wood 
construction in the roof and writing 
across the face of the plan "fire- 
proof tile roof", and a sketch was 
also made on the fcxce of the plan 
showing a possible concrete roof. In 
this indefinite form the plans were 
stamped "approved" by the plan ex- 
aminer. The custom of thus amend- 
ing plans wiiicli call for construc- 
tion in violation of the ordinances, 
and then stamping them "approved" 
is bad. This fact has been pointed 
out to the Department of Buildings 
before, and the practice should have 
been discontinued. It is not uncom- 
mon for some architects to submit 
plans calling for construction that 
does not comply with the ordinances, 
in the hope that it will slip through 
unnoticed and the plans be stamped 
"approved'", or, if it is detected, 
that the plans will be changed by 
the department on their face and 
then stamped "approved", leaving 
them in a confused state and impos- 



3228 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES.

sible of clear interpretation later 
by inspectors and furnishing good 
foundation for future argument 
should the work of construction be 
stopped for the alleged violation. 
If all such plans are simply rejected 
and no plans amended on their face 
or in any case stamped "approved" 
until they comply in all respects 
with the building ordinances, this 
practice on the part* of such archi- 
tects as indulge in it will be ef- 
fectively stopped, and in the judg- 
ment of the , committee that is the 
only way by which it can be ef- 
fectively stopped. 

3 — ^Although the construction work on 
this building was begun in October, 
19ill, the building permit was not 
issued until January 23, 1912, at 
which time the foundation was 
completed and the walls were partly 
up. In the judgment of the com- 
mittee, the section of the Building 
Code which prohibits any construc- 
tion work of any kind before com- 
plete plans have been approved and 
the permit issued, should be strict- 
ly enforced, 

4 — The building permit was issued in 
this case without the required ap- 
proval stamps of the Sanitary Bu- 
reau and of the engineers of the 
Building Department. 

5 — Ten duplicate sets of plans were 
prepared by the architect, only two 
of which were approved by the de- 
partment after being amended, one 
of which was kept in the depart- 
ment and the other returned to the 
architect. Although Mr. Klafter, the 
architect, had complete supervision 
of the construction of the building, 
the testimony shows the owner, Mr. 
Goldstein, to have made promiscu- 
ous use of the unapproved and un- 
amended sets of plans in getting 
various bids, including one for the 
steel beams to support the roof. 

6 — Mr. Eaphael Goldstein took one 
of these unapproved and unamended 
sets of plans showing the light 
wooden roof construction to Mr. 
Koepke, of the Hansell-Elcock Co., 
for drawings and figures on steel 
girders to support that i;oof. 

7 — The Hansell-Elcock Co. prepared 
drawings for the steel roof con- 
struction calling for 24" beams, the 
original plans calling for 42'' gird- 



ers, they being advised that the orig- 
inal plans had contemplated two 
possible future stories on the build- 
ing, a plan which Mr. Raphael Gold- 
stein told them he had abandoned, 

8 — ^When the Hansell-Elcock Co. were 
asked by Mr, Goldstein to design 
steel for the roof he erroneously 
told them that the steel was to 
carry the roof called for by those 
plans, namely, a wooden roof. 

9 — These steel drawings were returned 
to Mr. Klafter, the architect, and 
the committee believes from the evi- . 
dence that he put his architect's 
seal on them and sent them by his 
brother to Mr. Jensen, one of the 
architectural engineers in the Build- 
ing Department, for approval. Mr. 
Klafter's attempt to shift the plac- 
ing of his architect's seal on these 
drawings onto Mr. Goldstein had no 
weight with the committee and, in 
the judgment of the committee, the 
placing of his seal on these drawings 
without knowing positively that, 
they had been based upon a proper 
set of approved plans showing the . 
exact roof construction they v/ere , 
to carry, was gross negligence on 
his part. 

10 — When these steel drawings were 
presented to Mr. Jensen for ap- 
proval, he asked the person who 
brought them in from Mr. Klafter's 
office what the roof construction 
was to be, and he was advised thatf 
it was 12" flat tile arches with 3'' 
tile roof resting on T irons. In the 
judgment of tlie coinmittee, Mr. Jen- 
sen should not rely on such verba,! 
information in such cases, but 
should consult the set of plans for 
the job which are on file in the de- 
partment. Mr. Jensen testified that 
an inspection by him of the plans ' 
for this job on file in the office 
would not have indicated very much.; 
to him as to what the roof con- 
struction was to be. Such an ex- ■ 
amination of the plans at that time :, 
probably would have led to the tak- 
ing up of the entire matter with Mr. ; 
Ericsson or Mr. Knight and the | 
much disputed point would have ? 
been settled. Relying upon the oral ', 
information given him as to the roof ?,' 
construction, Mr. Jensen approved ' 
the steel drawings.

beams and a heavy concrete roof

were prepared by the arcliitect, Mr. 
Klafter, and contracts were drawn 
by him for the same and were duly 
executed. In view of all the facts, 
which the committee believes were 
known to Mr. Klafter or which the 
committee believes should have been 
known to him in the exercise of or- 
dinary care and skill in the prac- 
tice of his profession as an archi- 
tect, it is the judgment of the com- 
mittee that it Avas gross negligence 
on his part to put steel girders 
into this building to carry the roof 
which were so much lighter than 
those called for in the original plans, 
and, at the same time, to put a con- 
crete roof on tlie girders which was^ 
so much heavier than either the 
wooden roof called for in the or- 
iginal plans or the 3" book tile 
roof later written upon tlie plans 
by way of amendment. 

12 — Mr. Jeckel, building superintend- 
ent for Mr, Klafter, was on this job 
during the period of construction. 
He called Mr, Klafter's attention to 
the fact that the steel being put 
into the building was not the size 
called for by the original plans, and 
Mr. Klafter said he would have his 
chief draughtsman look into the 
matter. 

13 — The work of setting the steel 
girders to carry the roof was fin- 
ished about March 25th and the 
work of putting on the concrete 
roof began about three weeks later 
and was completed within ten days 
after that. 

14 — The records of the Building De- 
partment show that between March 
15th and June 15th this building 
was visited b}^ building inspectors 
three times, namely, on March 22, 
March 29 and June 4. The testi- 
mony disclosed the fact that an in- 
spector visited the building on April 
22nd, but he was directed to go there 
by another inspector who was 
breaking him in, and his visit was 
an informal one. 

In the judgment of the committee, 
the practice in the Building Depart- 
ment with reference to the work 
of the building inspectors in the 
field is not such as to give the best 
results possible with the force at 
hand, but even when the practice 
is so changed as to produce the max- 
imum of their efficiency, the com- 



mittee believes the inspection work 
of the department will still be lack- 
ing and cannot be made to fully 
meet the requirements of the work 
in hand without an increase in the 
number of inspectors and also a 
substantial raising of their individ- 
ual efficiency. The committee fur- 
ther fe.els that the class of men 
which should be filling such posi- 
tions as those of building inspectors 
cannot and will not be attracted to 
that work by the compensation that 
now goes with it. 

That the roof of this building was al- 
lowed to remain and the theater to 
continue open to the public for some 
time after the roof beams were known 
by the Commissioner of Buildings to be 
structurally weak was also undisputed. 
In the judgment of the committee, the 
responsibility for that fact rests largely 
with Mr. Ericsson, the Commisioner of 
Buildings, although it rests in some 
measure upon Mr. Goldstein, the owner, 
and Mr. Klafter, the architect. The 
committee believes that Mr. Klafter al- 
ways had possession of such facts as, in 
their judgment, in the exercise of rea- 
sonable care in his practice as a licensed 
architect, should have led him to the 
conclusion that the roof was weak, and 
we therefore believe he was negligent 
not only in allowing such roof con- 
struction to go into the building in the 
first place, but also in certifying to the 
owner, as it Avas testified he did, at 
the time the building was finished that 
it had been completed in compliance 
with the plans and specifications and 
was ready for occupancy, and in suf- 
fering the theater to be opened to the 
public and continue to so remain open 
to and be frequented by large numbers 
of people daily. 

Stated briefly, some of the testimony 
given before the committee which 
brought it to these conclusions was to 
the following effect: 

1 — In September, if not earlier than 
that, the carpenter contractor told 
one of the Goldsteins that he 
thought the roof beams were sag- 
ging. This statement was repeated 
several times, and in November the 
owner employed Mr. Davidson, an 
engineer, to examine the building 
and make a report on it. 

2 — On November 9 Mr. Davidson sub- 
mitted his report to the owner, in

wjiich he advised liim in part as 
follows : 

"The writer, therefore, begs to 
advise you that your building is 
absolutely unsafe and should be 
closed by the police power of the 
city at once. You are assuming a 
fearful financial risk personally in 
permitting this building to be oc- 
cupied. Your son advises the writer 
that the steel roof construction was 
guaranteed to you by your archi- 
tect to be of, sufficient strength to 
support two additional stories if the 
occupancy of your building was ever 
changed from a theater to other 
business property and you should 
conclude at some future time to add 
two more stories to the building. 
As to this statement, it is too ab- 
surd to ever be considered. The 
facts are that the roof girders as 
they exist do not have sufficient 
strength to safely support the dead 
weight of the roof of your present 
building." 

4 — On November 13, Mr. Davidson 
called at the Building Department 
and gave Mr. Ericsson a copy of his 
report to Mr. Goldstein. 

5 — ^Under date of November 15, the 
Commissioner of Buildings, by reg- 
istered mail, notified Mr. Goldstein 
"to close said theater to the pub- 
lic and to keep same closed until 
said theater building is put in a 
good and safe condition and so cer- 
tified by your architect." 

6 — On November 16, Mr. Davidson be- 
ing absent from the office, his part- 
ner, Mr. Patterson, wrote Mr. 
Ericsson a letter reading in part as 
follows : 

"Mr. Goldstein assures us this 
morning that there was a very ma- 
terial difference in the steel actually 
placed in the building and that 
shown on the plans which were sub- 
mitted for Mr. Davidson's check- 
ing. The steel was fabricated and 
erected by Hansell-Elcock Co., and 
we are now trying to get possession 
of the details in order to make the 
necessary calculations anew. Mr. 
Goldstein wishes the notice of No- 
vember 15 to be held in abeyance 
until we can get possession of these 
details, which he says will be this 
afternoon." 

7 — On November 16, Mr. Ericsson 



wrote again to Mr. Goldstein re- 
ferring to the letter he had re- 
ceived from Mr. Patterson, suying 
that Patterson and Davidson had 
asked "that the matter be ^held 
in abeyance until the proper plans 
can be consulted and the building 
examined, which they are now sat- 
isfied is not in such dangerous con- 
dition as was . first represented. 
Under these circumstances, we with- 
draw the order to close the theater, 
conditional that Mr. Davidson keep 
in touch with this department and 
furnish u.s with an early report as 
to actual conditions at the build- 
ing." 

8 — On November 20', Mr. Davidson 
wrote Mr. Ericsson stating in 
part: "The writer is very sorry in- 
deed that you have evidently mis- 
understood the statement contained 
in our letter signed by Mr. Patter- 
son. Mr. Patterson's letter to you 
stated that Mr. Goldstein had ad- 
vised us that the details submitted 
to us for check were not the details 
of the building. We did not state 
in our letter that we were satis- 
fied that the building 'is not in 
such dangerous condition as was 
at first represented.' There was no 
such statement contained in Mr. 
Patterson's letter which would war- 
rant you in drawing such a con- 
clusion." 

9 — On the same day (November 20), 
Mr. Davidson submitted another re- 
port on the building to Mr. Erics- 
son reading in part as follows : "The 
writer begs to advise you that yes- 
terday afternoon, accompanied by 
Mr. Goldstein, he called at your ot- 
fice and exhibited to you the steel 
frame plans for this building as ap- 
proved by your architectural en- 
gineer, Mr. * ,)ensen. The details 
shown on this plan agree exactly 
with the details submitted by Mr. 
Goldstein, which were the basis for 
the writer's formal report to you; 
therefore, the writer must adhere 
to his former opinion that the 
structural steel work in the roof 
girders is vastly overstressed, and, 
in his opinion, the building is in a 
dangerous condition. * " In 
conclusion, the writer begs to ad- 
vise you that in making this report 
to you he is turning the entire mat- 
ter* over to your organization, and 
that as far as any repair work or

changes which may be made, that 
he does not expect to have anything 
whatever to do with the same. He 
was employed simply to malce a re- 
port on the building and has done 
so, and finding the conditions as 
bad as they were he felt that it 
was his duty as a citizen to report 
the conditions to you aside from 
placing himself in the position of 
not being responsible for anything 
which might happen to the build- 
ing." 

10 — On November 21, Mr. Ericsson ad- 
dressed a communication in writing 
to Mr. Jensen, one of the architec- 
tural engineers in the Department 
of Buildings, directing him to make 
an examination of the roof of the 
building in question and determine 
its condition as regards safety and ' 
make a report on the same without 
delay. 

11^ — Mr. Jensen visited the building 
and made extensive observations 
and examinations on November 22 
and 23, and on Monday, November 
25, completed his calculations and 
drafted his report to Mr. Ericsson. 
This report reached the Building 
Commissioner on the morning of 
November 26. It read in part as 
follows : "The roof girders are much 
overstressed. Instead of a stress of 
16,000 pounds, as allowed by the or- 
dinance, my computations show that 
there is a stress of at least 34,000 
pounds per square inch on the ex- 
treme fiber. * * * The allow- 
able deflection for a unit stress of 
16,000 pounds would have been 
about l^/o'" . The actual deflection is 
3%", double that would be con- 
sidered safe by good engineering 
practice. In all the calculations of 
this girder, no allowance has been 
made for the 25-pound live load re- 
quired by the ordinance. In my 
opinion. Architects Patterson and 
Davidson have correctly stated the 
situation when they say that this 
roof is in a dangerous condition. 
The matter will become a great 
deal worse when a heavy snow lies 
on the roof. I would suggest that 
the theater be immediately closed 
and kept closed until roof construc- 
tion is strengthened so that it will 
safely carry the load." 

12 — Under date of November 27, Mr. 
Ericsson wrote again to Mr. Gold- 



stein saying that reports he had 
received revealed "the fact that the 
roof construction of your theater 
is in an unsafe condition and you 
are hereby notified to proceed to 
strengthen and safeguard same by 
either putting in cast iron or steel 
columns under each roof girder or 
new roof trusses to supplement the 
present ones. Plans to be submitted 
to this department for approval and 
work to proceed at once. Theater 
must be closed while these changes 
are being made." 

13 — About this time Mr. Klafter con- 
sulted Mr. Ronnenberg, an engi- 
neer, who checked tne steel plans and 
compared his figures with Mr. Jen- 
sen's, and they substantially agreed. 
Mr. Ronnenberg suggested a con- 
tractor to shore up the beams at 
once pending permanent repairs, and 
Mr. Klafter and his superintendent 
met Mr. Goldstein at the building 
one afternoon and urged the im- 
mediate engagement of this con- 
tractor for that purpose. Mr. Gold- 
stein was unAvilling to enter into 
any contract for this work until 
he had procured figures from other 
contractors. The following day, 
Monday, December 2, Mr. Ronnen- 
berg called up Mr. Jensen and said 
he was through Avith the case and 
would assume no further responsi- 
bility owing to the fact that the ef- 
fort which had been made to in- 
duce the ow^ner to act at once had 
failed, and, on the same day. Mr. 
Klafter's superintendent, at his di- 
rection, called up the Building De- 
partn^ent to the same eftect. 

14 — On December 2. Mr. Goldstein and 
Mr. Davidson met in the office of the 
Commissioner of Buildings in the 
City Hall. Mr. Ericsson "told them 
he would not be responsible for the 
theater any further because "it is 
getting late in the season and we 
are liable to have either a cold spell 
or a snow storm and either one of 
them would be enough to maybe 
start the roof sagging still more." 
Mr. Ericsson insisted that Mr. 
Davidson undertake the Avork of 
strengthening the roof, and he 
finally agreed to do so. On the 
promise of Mr. Davidson that in 
case it started to snow or turn de- 
cidedly colder, he would personally 
"be responsible for the immediate 
closing of the theater without any

further notice from the Department. 
Mr. Ericsson agreed to permit Mr. 
Goldstein and his tenants to keep 
the theater open until the work of 
repairing and strengthening the roof 
should begin, but the understanding 
was that when the work did begin 
the house should be closed and kept 
closed until the work was completed. 
On this agreement made by Mr. , 
Davidson, Mr. Ericsson considered 
himself relieved from all further re- 
sponsibilitjT. With reference to this 
conference,' Mr. Davidson testified, 
"Personally, I doubted the advisa- 
bility of allowing the theater to re- 
main open, although I told Mr. 
Ericsson I did not believe there was 
any danger of immediate collapse, 
but did think there would be imme- 
diate danger in case of a snow storm 
or cold snap." 

In the judgment of the committee, 
Mr. Davidson should have stood by 
the position he had taken in his 
report to Mr. Goldstein, dated No- 
vember 9, in which he recommended 
that the building be immediately 
closed aud kept closed until the roof 
had been strengthened, instead of 
assuming the responsibility he did. 
Hundreds of people attended the per- 
formances at this theater every 
afternoon and evening during all of 
the week following this conference 
and up to and including Sunday 
night, December 8. 

The committee believes the Com- 
missioner of Buildings was justified 
in issuing a closing order on No- 
vember 13, the day on which Mr. 
Davidson gave him a copy of the 
report he had made to the owner 
of the theater under date of No- 
vember 9, and that he should not 
have withdrawn that order; that 
ordinary care and prudence on the 
part of" the Commissioner of Build- 
ings in this case demanded the issu- 
ance of a closing order on this thea- 
ter to the Police Department imme- 
diately upon receipt of Mr. David- 
son's report dated November 20th. 
And the committee further believes 
that Mr. Ericsson should certainly 
have closed the theater without a 
moment's delay upon his receipt on 
November 26, 1912, of the report 
of Mr. Jensen, one of the engineers 
in the Department of Buildings, 
which confirmed the findings in the 
report of Mr. Davidson, and which 



read in part as follows : "In my 
opinion. Architects Patterson and 
Davidson have correctly stated the 
situation when they say that this 
roof is in a dangerous condition. 
The matter will become a great deal 
worse when a heavy snow lies on 
the roof. I would suggest that the 
theater be immediately closed and 
kept closed until roof construction 
is strength©ned so that it will safely 
carry the load." 

In not closing the theater upon 
receiving the report of his own en- 
gineer, the committee believes the 
Commissioner of Buildings was- 
negligent in the extreme. 

The possibility of a law suit in 
the event the roof should ultimately 
be found to-be safe, should not in- 
terfere Avith the immediate closing 
of a theater or other similar build- 
ing, by the Commissioner of Build- 
ings, whenever he receives such in- 
formation on it as was contained in 
the report to the owner of this thea- 
ter, where such report is made by 
an architect or engineer of the 
standing Mr. Davidson has in his 
profession. 

15 — When Mr, Davidson undertook 
the work of strengthening this roof 
on December 2, he directed Mr. Gold- 
stein to arrange at once for shor- 
ing up the beams. He visited the 
theater on Saturday, December 1^ 
and found Mr. Goldstein had neglec-^ 
ted to do this and he then had Mr, 
Goldstein agree to let him arrange 
for this work at once. He secure^ 
a contractor to do the work the-^ 
first thing Monday morning, De- 
cember 9, on which day the neW 
steel trusses were to be delivere(i 
and the work of setting them was 
to commence. 

16— On Saturday, December 7, Mr, 
Ericsson prepared arid signed an 
order directing the Police Depart- 
ment to close the theater. The order 
was signed after 12 o'clock. 

17 — About 8 o'clock Monday morning|^ 
December 9, the workmen who wer& 
to shore up the roof girders vfem 
endeavoring to gain an entrance to 
the theater when the roof collapsed^ 
The falling roof annihilated aboul- 
two-thirds of the 600 seats in the 
house. Had the roof fallen during 
the occupancy of the theater by aB^

audience, every occupant of these 
400 seats would have been instantly 
killed. 

18 — Mr. Ericsson and Mr. Jensen 
heard of the coiiapse of the roof at 
the Building Department, between 
9 and 9:15 o'clock, on the morning 
it occurred. 

19 — The police order which had been 
prepared by Mr. Ericsson the pre- 
vious Saturday was carried down 
stairs to the Police Department 
about 10 o'clock by Mr. Hoey, who 
testified that he did not learn that 
the roof had collapsed until nearly 
noon. 

The committee employed Robert 
W. Hunt h Co. to test the steel in 
the roof girders which failed in this 
roof, and the report of their tests, 
submitted to the committee, shows 
the steel to have been perfect, as 
explained to the committee by Mr. 
Davidson. 

Two special orders were passed 
by the Council on this theater, 
neither one of which had anything 
whatever to do with the construction 
of the building itself. The first 
order was passed by the Council on 
January 15, 1912. It authorized the 
building of this theater without the 
ten-foot open spaces required by the 
Building Code for Cjass V theaters 
along both sides of the building. In 
lieu "of these open spaces, the plans 
which had previously been approved 
by the department, provided for ad- 
ditional exits over and above the 
ordinance requirements at the stage 
end of the theater. At that time 
the Code did not specifically cover 
theaters for moving picture purposes 
only containing over 300 seats. The 
Building Department was contend- 
ing that all moving picture theaters 
containing over 300 seats should be 
considered Class V buildings (re- 
quiring open spaces at least 10 feet 
wide on both sides), and the archi- 
tects and others were contending 
that all such theaters could and 
should be constructed under the 
provisions relating to Class IVC 
buildings (where no open spaces 
were required). Although these 
houses were clearly not within Class 
IVC, it was also true that they 
Avere not clearly within Class V. 
Although they were not specifically 
covered in the ordinance, the Com- 



missioner of Buildings insisted on 
the open spaces being provided un- 
less otherwise stipulated by Coun- 
cil order. Hence, the Council order 
on this theater. (Since that time 
an ordinance has been passed defi- 
nitely providing for moving picture 
theaters containing over 300 seats). 
This Council order contained the 
provisions that the building must 
be constructed according to the plans 
approved by the Department of 
Buildings. As these plans had then 
been approved by the department, 
they called for the extra exits and 
also for 42-inch roof girders with 
roof of 3 -inch book tile. They could 
also have been construed as allow- 
ing a concrete roof. If either roof 
had been put on over the 42-inch 
girders called for by those plans 
there never would have been the 
slightest danger of a collapse of 
the roof. The other Council order 
was passed the following March and 
referred to the theater seats only. 

In submitting this report of the 
testimony received by the committee 
in making this inquiry, together 
with its conclusions thereon, the 
committee Avishes also to suggest the 
immediate consideration of and to 
recommend the passage of ordinances 
providing that: 

1 — No plans submitted to the 
Department of Buildings shall be 
approved or stamped "approved" 
unless they comply in all respects 
with the ordinances of the City and, 
in case they do not so comply, they 
shall not be amended on their face 
and then stamped '"approved", but 
shall be rejected. 

2 — No plans or sets of plans shall 
be permitted on or about any build- 
ing or structure in course of erec- 
tion, except such as have been 
stamped "approved" by the Depart- 
ment of Buildings. 

3 — All roofs of theaters or other 
similar buildings must be tested be- 
fore the building may be occupied 
by some such method as is now re- 
quired by the ordinance in the case 
of reinforced concrete floors. 

4 — The committee would further 
recommend that the method of as- 
signing the work of building inspec- 
tors in the field be so changed as 
to insure an inspection of each and 



3234 REPORTS OF 

every building or structure in 
course of erection as often as possi- 
ble. The committee believes that 
the present method cannot result in 
the highest degree of efficiency which 
is possible in connection with that 
work. 

5 — The committee would also rec- 
ommend that immediate steps be 
taken by the Building Department 
' and the Civil Service Commission 
to bring about the filling of the 
present positions of building inspec- 
tors with men of the highest possi' 
ble efficiency under the present Civil 
Service rules. 

The committee wishes to take this oc- 
casion to express its appreciation of the 
co-operation of all those persons who 
appeared as witnesses before the com- 
mittee, and also the co-operation of the 
various attorneys who represented them 
in connection with the hearing before 
the committee.

thorized and directed to execute on be- 
hialf of the City of Chicago a quit-claim 
I deed of all interest acquired through tax 

i sales for delinquent special assessments

ises:

Wheb-eas, a shortage of funds is crip- 
pling the administration of the City 
Government and causing a reduction in 
the salaries of its employes; and 

Whereas, It has been proposed to in- 
crease the income of the City by a larger 
assessment of taxes upon the taxpayers; 
and 

Whereas, The shortage of funds of 
the City is largely due to the enormous 
and unnecessary taxes levied by the 



Sanitary District of Chicago; the same 
exceeding three million dollars, or the 
extent of the City's deficit; and 

Whereas, Said Sanitary District of 
Chicago has an independent income from 
its water power plant of over five hun- 
dred thousand dollars ($500,000.00) a 
year; and a further income from real 
estate rentals and the sale of waste ma- 
terial approximating one hundred thou- 
sand dollars ($100,000.00) a year; and 

Whereas, By ordinary good manage- 
ment this income can be more than 
doubled; and 

Whereas, The purposes for which the 
Sanitary District of Chicago was formed 
have been substantially accomplished, 
while there is still maintained a large 
overhead expense from which the pub- 
lic reaps no benefit. 

Be it resolved 'by the City Council oj 
the City of Chicago, That the Commiti 
tee on Judiciary be and it is hereby in- 
structed to prepare a bill whereby the 
Sanitary District of Chicago will be 
merged with the Citj of Chicago.

Communications from the Mayor, Comp-

ing a list of the names of persons re- 
leased from the House of Correction 
during the two weeks ended January 18, 
1913, together with the cause of each 
release, which was ordered 

Placed on file. 

ALSO, 

The folloAving veto message : 

Office of the Mayor, [ 
Chicago, January 20, 1913. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council of 
the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, with- 
out my approval, an ordinance passed 
hy your Honorable Body at your meet- 
ing of January 8, 1913, amending the 
appropriation ordinance passed January 
2, 1913, which amendatory ordinance ap- 
pears on pages 3193 and 3194 of the 
Journal of the Proceedings of the City 
Council of January 8, 1913. 

This ordinance was passed by your 
Honorable Body at my suggestion. Since 
its passage, however, a conference has 
ibeen held by your Committees on Finance 
and on Judiciary, State Legislation, Elec- 
tions and Rules, at which conference 
the citizens' committee recently appoint- 
ed by me at your direction was present. 
As a result of this conference it has 
been thought best to center all efforts, 
looking to financial relief for the city, 
upon the attempt to secure, first, the 
passage by the Legislature of an amend- 
ment to the Juul law specifically ex- 
empting the levy for the sinking funds 
and for the payment of interest upon the 
public debt from the three per cent 



limitation of that law, and, second, the 
authorization of the city for the issuance 
of bonds in the sum of approximately 
$2,700,000.00 to recoup the losses the 
general fund has sustained by the recent 
Supreme Court decision, including the 
sinking fund and interest account levies 
in the tliree per cent limitation. The 
amendatory ordinance in question might 
have a tendency to befog the issue and 
I withhold my approval of the same for 
this reason. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Riehert moved to reconsider the 
vote by which said ordinance vetoed by 
His Honor, the Mayor, was passed. 

The motion prevailed.. i 

Aid. Riehert moved to pass said ordi-| 
nance, the veto of His Honor, the Mat or, ! 
to the contrary notwithstanding. 

The motion was lost. 

ALSO, 

The following communication: 

Office of the Mayor, [ 
Chicago, January 20, 1913. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council of 
the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In pursuance of thel 
method adopted last year, I submit here-i 
with an ordinance amending the appro-: 
priation ordinance in accordance^ with 
the recommendations made by me in my 
veto message of January 8, 1913, and 
concurred in by your Honorable Body at 
your meeting of that date. 

Said amendatory ordinance follows the 
recommendations made by me in said 
veto message in all particulars excepli 
that the appropriation for interest oii 
bonded indebtedness is increased to pro! 
vide for the payment of interest du(| 
on bonds which may be issued in th( 
year 1913 for general corporate pur 
poses. This addition makes it necessarj 
to change the totals at several place; 
in the ordinance. This amendraeni 
strikes out the figures "$1,080,005.00' 
in line 28 on page 3059 of the Councij 
Proceedings of January 2, 1913, and in| 
serts in lieu thereof the figures "$1,402,| 
085.00"; also strikes out the figure! 
"$1,305,005.00" in line 31 on said pag<j 
3059 and inserts in lieu thereof the fig| 
ures "$1,627,085.00". 

Corresponding changes are also mad-:

in the totals as they appear in the re- 
capitulations at the end of the ordi- 
nance. 

Said amendatory ordinance also alters 
the wages to be paid arc lamp repairers 
and arc lamp trimmers to conform with 
the present union scale. The number 
to be employed has, however, been re- 
duced so that the total amount of this 
appropriation remains the same. The 
amendment strikes out lines 27 to 37 in- 
clusive on page 3099 which read as fol- 
lows :

ments ) —

At the request of the Finance Commit- 
tee I have also changed the title of 
"Principal Clerk" in line 37 of page 
3085 of said Journal to "Principal Spe- 
cial Assessment Clerk." 

I recommend that said amendatory or- 
dinance transmitted herewith be passed 
without the usual reference to a com- 
mittee so that the same may be pub- 
lished with the original appropriation 
ordinance passed January 2, 1913, there- 
by completing the appropriation ordi- 
nance for the year 1913. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed) Carter H. Harrison,

Civil Service Commission, I 
Chicago, January 18, 1913. j 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and Alder- 
men of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On the 16th day of De- 
cember, 1912, the following order was 
passed by the City Council: 

Whereas, The organization com- 
posed of members of the Police De- 
ment of the City of Chicago and known 
as the United Police, has officially is- 
sued a communication to the Commit- 
tee on Schools, Fire, Police and Civil 
Service, criticizing the action of that 
committee in connection with the pend- 
ing ordinance for the reorganization 
of the Police Department; and 

Whereas, It is currently rumored 
that members of this organization have 
threatened, in the event of the passage 
of this ordinance, to work for the 
defeat of all aldermen in favor of it; 
and 

Whereas, In connection with the 
appropriation ordinance for the year 
1910 it was rumored that this organi- 
' zation had collected a large sum of 
money for the purpose of securing, 
through bribery or otherwise, a raise 
in pay of certain of its members; and 

Whereas, It was at or about that 
time charged that one William F. 
Stine, its president, had embezzled a 
large amount of the money so collect- 
ed and no effort was made by the 
organization to apprehend or punish 
the said Stine; and 

Whereas, It was found by the Civil 
Service Commission of the City of 
Chicago, as a result of its investiga- 
tion of the Police Department, that 
this organization "is inimical to the 
best interests of discipline" and that 
it defends its members at trials for 
breaches of rules and regulations; 
therefore, be it 

Resolved, Tha,t the Civil Service 
Commission of the City of Chicago 
be and it hereby is requested to make 
a thorough investigation of this or- 
ganization, its membership, its activi- 
ties and its connection with that docu- 
ment entitled "Objections to and Kea- 
son Why," issued under date of De- 
cember 7, 1912, and report the result 
of such investigation with its conclu- 



sions and recommendations to the City 
Council. 

Ellis Geigeb, 
Aid. Twenty-first Ward. 
Eugene Block, 
Ninth Ward. 
Chicago, December 16, 1912. 
Approved, December 19, 1912. 
Carter H. Harrison, Mayor. 

This order was approved by His Honor, 
the Mayor, on the 19th day of December, 
and in accordance with the request there- 
in contained this Commission held its 
first public hearing on the 20th day of 
December and continued therein up to 
and including the sixth day of January, 
1913. In all, about fifty witnesses were 
called and examined. Other evidence was 
also secured. 

During the investigation, through the 
courtesy of the Corporation Counsel, the 
Commission was ably assisted by Mr. 
Leon Hornstein, Assistant Corporation 
Counsel. 

Attention is called to the fact that 
through a typographical error in the 
order above set forth, reference is made 
to the appropriation ordinance of 1910, 
whereas it should have been 1911. 

facts developed and conclusions 

REACHED. 

The investigation vinqualifiedly estab- 
lished the following facts and leads to 
the following conclusions: 

1 — That at least since the early part 
of the year 1910 the United Police of 
Chicago has been perniciously active in 
political affairs. 

2 — That it has interfered with and 
hampered the management of the Depart- 
ment of Police and embarrassed the city 
administration. 

3 — That it has attempted to influence 
and has threatened individual members 
of the City Council in matters of salary 
increase and other matters. 

4 — That its attitude and actions have 
been inimical to proper discipline in the 
department. 

5 — That officers and members thereof 
were parties to and aided in the col- 
lection of a large sum of money esti- 
mated to be not less than $60,000, the 
ostensible purpose of which was the brib- 
ery of members of the City Council and 
of the State Legislature, in the interests 

I of police patrolmen. 



3282 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January, 20, 1913. 



6 — That no part of such fund was used 
for bribery purposes, but that a large 
part thereof was misappropriated by the 
then president of the United Police of 
Chicago, William F. Stine. 

7 — That some of the officers, members 
of the executive board, collectors and 
members of the organization were par- 
ties to a conspiracy to conceal the facts 
surrounding such collection, and as a 
part of such conspiracy gave false testi- 
mony before this Commission. 

8 — That the 'organization was respon- 
sible for the document entitled "Objec- 
tions to and Reasons Why," addressed 
to the Committee on Schools, Fire, Police 
and Civil Service of the City Council. 

9 — That the United Police had never 
done anything to "increase the efficiency, 
as public servants, of the individual 
members of the police force," one of the 
alleged objects of its organization. 

10 — That the only justification for the 
organization was the protection of its 
members from liability arising out of 
honest performance of police duty and 
the securing of fair and impartial hear- 
ings before the trial board. ' 

As a result of the facts disclosed, the 
Commission preferred charges against 
the four officers of this organization now 
in the service of the city, the eight mem- 
bers of the executive board, and two oth- 
er members as being wholly or in part 
responsible for the activities above set 
forth. In five cases charges of giving 
false testimony before the Commission 
were included. 

In addition, the evidence secured 
against Stine has been laid before the 
State's Attorney of Cook County. 

RESULTS OF INVESTIGATION. 

The first five charges were filed Janu- 
ary 13, 1913, and the remaining ten Jan- 
uary 14, 1913. Up to the time the 
charges were filed there was but little 
indication that the organization would 
be dissolved, but later steps were taken 
by the officers and executive board to dis- 
band and this was accomplished at a 
meeting held January 17, 1913. The 
Commission has not as yet had any of- 
ficial notice of this action, but in this 
report assumes that the published notices 
thereof are correct. 

ORGANIZATION. 

The United Police of Chicago was or- 
ganized November 3, 1907. It was a 



voluntary organization, not incorporated, 
and all members of the active force and 
police operators were eligible to mem- 
bership. 

The avowed objects, as stated in the 
constitution and by-laws, were: 

(a) To increase the efficiency, as 
public servants, of the individual 
members of the police force of the 
City of Chicago. 

(b) To promote their welfare. 

(c) To protect them from injustice 
and imposition. 

The government of the organization 
was vested in an executive board con- 
sisting of a president, vice-president, re- 
cording secretary, financial secretary, 
treasurer, and one member from each 
of the eight police divisions of the de- 
partment. Annually in each police pre- 
cinct an election was held for one col- 
lector for the precinct and one delegate 
to the annual convention for each twenty- 
five members at such station. The col- , 
lectors and delegates at a division con- 
vention selected the division member of 
the executive board, and the precinct col- 
lectors and delegates in annual conven- 
tion selected the officers. The collectors 
were charged with the collection of dues 
of twenty-five cents per month from each 
member in their respective precincts. 

The only voice the members had in the 
affairs of the organization was in the 
selection of collectors and delegates to 
the annual convention. When the con- 
vention was over the latter dropped out. 
Aside from the election of officers the 
convention served no real purpose, for 
the executive board could negative any- 
thing it did. The "constitution and 
laws" could be changed by the executive 
board and collectors at any time. These 
provided that any action taken by the 
executive board in conjunction with the 
collectors "shall be deemed the action of 
the entire organization, and shall he tind- 
ing upon each and ev'ery memher there- 
of." 

At the high tide of membership the j 
organization comprised about 4.000 men, i 
and of this number 3,940 had no real | 
voice in its affairs. 

Section 3 of Article VI of the con- 
stitution and laws in force July 2, 1911, 
provided for the selection of an executive 
committee of not exceeding one member I 
of each rank from each station to com- 
pose an executive committee for the re- 
spective rank. In this way "The Exec- 



Januaiy 20, 1943

3283 



utive Committee of Patrolmen," hereafter 
referred to, was formed. Each executive 
committee was permitted to oi'ganize and 
elect a chairman, secretary and treas- 
urer. 

EARLY ACTIVITIES. 

The first two j^ears of the existence of 
the organization, namely, from Novem- 
ber, 1907, to November 1909, show a 
fairly close adherence to the original 
purposes as above outlined, though there 
is nothing to show any effort toward 
increased departmental efficiency except 
by the absorption of two rival organiza- 
tions. 

During these j'ears the organization's 
attornej' defended men before the trial 
board and assisted the Corporation Coun- 
sel's office in defending civil suits for 
damages against its members. Its meth- 
od of handling its financial affairs ap- 
pears to have been scrupulously exact, 
and the only criticism of the official ac- 
tion of the governing body is that it 
sent members sample or marked ballots 
showing a preference for certain candi- 
dates at coming elections. 

In November, 1900, after a hotly con- 
tested election, William F. Stine, a pa- 
trolman, was elected president and fi-om 
that time dates a change in methods 
and increased political activity. 

POLITICAL ACTIVITY. 

In the spring elections of 1910 sample 
ballots were again sent out, and the 
organization was active in furthering the 
interests of certain candidates and in at- 
tacking others. 

The demand for silary increases dur- 
ing each annual budget-making period 
and the pi-essure brought to bear upon 
the City Council, individually and coi- 
lectively, for a series of years had been 
such that when Police Department salary 
items were up for determination they 
were considered behind closed doors. 
Aldermen were threatened with political 
opposition; the city administration was 
embarrassed and bulldozed. 

It is apparent that earlv in 1910 the 
men in control of the United Police had 
perfected plans for forcing the City 
Council to grant a salary increase for 
patrolmen. An attempt was made dur- 
ing the investigation to shift from the 
Cnited Police as an organization all re- 
sponsibility for activity in connection 
with the patrolmen's salary item in the 
1911 budget and to place it upon the 



executive committee of patrolmen. The 
organization cannot evade responsibility. 
The evidence clearly shows that Stine, 
the president, and Dwyer, the treasurer, 
were in constant touch Avith the officers 
of the Patrolmen's Executive Committee. 

SLUSH FUND. 

In June, 1910, the collectors in the 
various precincts began the distribution 
among patrolmen of small manila envel- 
opes, much like the common pay envel- 
ope. These were serially numbered and 
had printed on the outside the follow- 
ing: 

RE,rERENDU]M VOTE — ^PATROL:NriEN ONLY 
QUESTIONS 4 AND 5 — PENSIONS 

Place vote within this carton, seal and 
return to the Patrolmen's Committee not 
later than June 15, 1910. 

CAREFULLY NOTE THE NUMBER OF THIS 
CARTON 

No. . 

The evidence shows clearly tiiat the 
organization paid for these envelopes 
and that they were delivered in part to 
Stine and in part to Edward J. Dodd. a 
member. The scheme was cleverly de- 
vised. The "vote" was a S20 bill', and 
the legend "Questions 4 and 5" meant 
four times $5. The serial numbering 
coupled with the caution. "Carefully 
note the number of this carton," permit- 
ted a perfect clieck on who had paid 
and gave notice that the one Avho re- 
fused could not conceal his 'identity. 

The evidence further shows that the 
envelopes containing the collections were 
delivered to Stine and to Joseph J. Car- 
ney, a patrolman, a member of the or- 
ganization. The envelopes were opened 
by them, due credit given, and the cur- 
rency they respectively collected placed 
in safety dejiosit boxes. Dwyer had ac- 
cess to the box in wiiich the money 
Stine had collected was placed, and the 
box rented in their joint names. 

Edward J. Drennau, recording secre- 
tary of the United Police, was secretary 
of the Patrolmen's Committee and kept 
the books. These have disappeared. 

On October 14, 1910, Stine secured a 
furlough for 120 days, and thereafter de- 
voted his entire time in lobbying for 
the increase, being paid $200 per month 
for his services. The activities of the 
organization were not confined to him 
alone. The united inflnence of 3.000 
men, their relatives, associates and

friends, was brought to bear upon the 
Finance Committee and the City Coun- 
cil. 

The increase was passed by the Com- 
mittee of the Whole, in spite of the fact 
that the city's finances would not per- 
mit and the Finance Committee was 
against it. Threats of political annihil- 
ation and not money had accomplished 
the purpose of the Executive Committee 
of Patrolmen, otherwise the United Po- 
lice. 

Statements 'on the floor of the Coun- 
cil of the existence of a "slush fund" 
caused a re-reference of the budget to 
the Finance Committee and the linal 
elimination of the raise in pay. Follow- 
ing this a morning paper carried the fol- 
lowing headline: 

POLICE, IN OPEN, VOW VENGEANCE 
AGAINST COUNCIL 

United Body "Out After" Aldermen Vv ho 
Fought Pay Raise. 

It is true that the fulminations ap- 
pearing in this 'article were taken from 
an interview Avith Stine in which he, 
among other things, said that the tallc 
about a slush fund was "rot," but he 
did know "that we have got to 'get' the 
fellows who beat us."' 

A month later S'tine had left Chicago 
and, according to the daily press, with 
him had gojie much of the "slush fund." 

There is but little doubt that in the 
spring election of 1911 a determined ef- 
fort was made "to get the fellows who 
beat" the increase in pay. 

The slush fund was conceived in sin 
and born in iniquity. That the con- 
tributors to it believed that its pur- 
pose was the corruption of the members 
of the City Council and the State (Leg- 
islature was fully established. Aside 
from the plan of secrecy and obvious 
subterfuge with which it was raised, 
each contributing patrolman knew its 
ostensible purpose, placed his money in 
the "referendum" envelope and — asked 
no questions. The "underground" sup- 
plied the necessary information. The 
collection began in the summer of 1910 
and continued throughout the balance of 
the year. 

In spite of the fact that the common- 
ly accepted idea in and out of the de- 
partment \vas that the ultimate pur- 
pose of the fund was bribery to secure 



salary increases and pension provisions, 
the Commission is of opinion that the 
contributors were deluded from the start 
and that the real purpose was the col- 
lection of money which could be misap- 
propriated by those in control without 
any real danger of punishment even if 
detected. Every collector and every con- i 
tributor was particeps criminis. All 
had been guilty of violations at least I 
of the civil service law and the police 
rules and regulations. On this the con- 
spirators or, if there was but one, Stine 
relied. That Stine, in ordinary police 
parlance, "double-crossed" his associates 
appears from the evidence, from pub- , 
lished newspaper accounts and from the 
persistency with which he has remained j 
away from Chicago since the storm i 
broke. , | 

Based upon the law of averages, the \ 
Commission believes that the sum col- | 
lected was not far from $60,000. Sums j 
ranging from $2.00 up were returned to : 
contributors, the amount depending | 
largely upon the proportion collected j 
and kept by Carney. He returned all 
that came to him. 

How much reached Stine and his as- , 
sociates, how much vanisned on the way, i 
how much was dissipated in "expenses," I 
how much disappeared with Stine and 
how much was returnea to contributor|i;, 
are merely matters, of conjecture aiil 
not of any real importance in this iji^ 
vestigation. That not one dollar reach' 
ed any member of the Council or Sta|e 
Legislature is certain. * 
The Commission did not pursue ife 
investigation of the slush fund collefc 
tion beyond the point of securing un- 
questionable evidence of such collection 
because, in the interests of economy anl 
legal proof, no further evidence was nel*- 
essary. It could have been cumulate 
indefinitely. 

This slush fund was not carried in t|e 
accounts of the United Police, but t|fi 
books of the financial secretary, sho-#- 
ing accurately the collection and dis- 
bursement of the regular monthly duel, 
throw an interesting side light on tie 
effect the S'tine episode had upon ttoe 
membership of the organization. The 
average monthly dues collected between 
Junfe, 1910, aiid February, 1911, was 
about $900. The pay increase was de- 
feated late in February, 1911. The col- 
lectors turned in $246.75 for the month 
of April, and $229.00 for the month ofj 
May, 1911 — a decrease of over 70 per 
cent.

The collection of the slush fund was 
in itself deplorable enough from any 
standpoint, but it has led directly to 
the giving of false testimony and to 
conspiracies to "frame" and "cover up." 
These conspiracies have heretofore been 
so successful that the btate's Attorney 
of Cook County and the grand jury have 
failed in the past to secure the slight- 
est tangible evidence of the collection 
of money in the department for unlaw- 
ful purposes. 

That 3,000 or more policemen should 
he parties to a gigantic plot to break 
the laws they have sworn to enforce; 
that those men when called, brazenly 
faced bribery charges by refusal to tell 
the truth under oath ; and that dire pun- 
ishment has been threatened to any 
member of that organization who did, 
must necessarily shake the confidence 
of every citizen in a body of municipal 
servants to whom the City of Chicago 
pays nearly $6,000,000 per annum in 
salaries alone. 

POLICE INVESTIGATION. 

At the request of His Honor, the 
Mayor, under date of September 15, 

1911. this Commission undertook an in- 
vestigation "into the alleged connection 
het^yeen the Police Department and the 
various criminal classes in the city." 
This investigation lasted until March 5, 

1912, when a final report thereon was 
made to the Mayor, which report was 
thereafter referred .to your Honorable 
Body and considered in connection with 
the so-called police reorganization ordi- 
nance recently passed. 

From the beginning of the investi- 
gation the influence of the United l-o- 
lice was felt, and in practically all of 
the sixty-six cases heard by the Com- 
mission that organization defended the 
3fficers and members of the department 
charged with inefficiency and incompe- 
:ency in the service of the city. 

The Commissison has been urtable to 
earn with any degree of accuracy how 
uuch money the organization has paid 
)ut in attorneys' and stenographers' 
ees and incidental expenses in the de- 
ense of members discharged from the 
oree; nor can it say what amount it 
till owes. Its estimate is that not less 
han $15,000 has already been spent, and 
hat the organization still owes any- 
diere from $12,000 to $20,000. These 
■dls have run for more than nine 
ionths. 



POLICE REORGANIZATION. 

The urgent need for a complete re- 
organization of the Police Department 
was realized by the Committee on 
Schools, Fire, Police and Civil Service. 
The sub-committee of that committee 
devoted several months to a comprehen- 
sive and thorough study of the problem. 
The sub-committee's report (adopted 
unanimously by the full committee) 
was given wide publicity, every oppor- 
tunity being offered to officers and mem- 
bers of the department to appear be- 
fore the committee and express their 
views for or against the proposed plan. 
None appeared except the General Su- 
perintendent and representatives of the 
police operators. Instead of coming out 
into the open and arguing the proposi- 
tion on its merits, the United Police, 
under the signature of its attorney and 
bearing the full roster of its officers and 
executive board on a leading page, is- 
sued a pamphlet entitled "Objections To 
and Reasons Why" the proposed reor- 
ganization should not pass. 

It clearly appears that this document 
of twenty-four expensively printed 
pages was never submitted to the offi- 
cers and executive board, let alone the 
membership at large, for the president 
of the organization took upon himself 
all responsibility therefor and many of 
the other responsible officers repudiated 
the same. Yet in the foreword the docu- 
ment says that the Police Department 
has given the ordinance "very careful 
study, and that the following treatise 
on^ the subject is the sentiment that is 
voiced by the majority of its members." 

How this sentiment was voiced the 
Commission is unable to learn. No 
meeting was held, no referendum taken; 
the president assumes the burden, and 
the attorney hides behind his profes- 
sional privilege. 

The document itself places false in- 
terpretations on the law and court de- 
cisions, and in its general tenor attacks 
the intelligence and sincerity of the 
sub-committee which presented an ordi- 
nance that passed the Council by a large 
m.ajority, 

A quotation from the document is 
enough to determine its animus and 
value : 

"x4nother glaring feature of the or- 
dinance which provides for a condi- 
tion absolutely ridiculous is that all 
men detailed on general licenses, such 



3280 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



Januarv. 20, 1913. 



as saloon licenses, are required to 
wear uniforms .... 

"These could have been pointed out 
to this committee if they could have 
taken this matter up with someone 
connected with the department who 
could show the inconsistencies of the 
different parts of the new ordinance." 

The final sentence given above is 
based upon a false assumption and inti- 
mates "star chamber" sessions, with tiie 
department not represented. As a mat- 
ter of fact, before the report of the 
sub-committee was presented, the Gen- 
eral Superintendent and Assistant Gen- 
eral Superintendent were given a hear- 
ing, and the sessions of the full com- 
mittee were open to all. 

The document in itself, if it truly rep- 
resented the honest opinion of the rank 
and file of the department and was 
couched in language that a body of pub- 
lic servants should address to the legis- 
lative branch of the city government, 
would have commanded respect and would 
have been worthy of consideration; but 
upon the sworn testimony introduced, 
it represents the opinion of the man who 
fathers it and the attorney who claims 
immunity because of his profession. 

Had it not been challenged by the 
City Council, it would have gone down 
as the opinion of a considerable body of 
men. 

As it noAV stands, it counts for no 
more than the money it cost to print it, 
the source of which remains unexplained. 
Claim was made that it was issued in 
response to a request of the chairman 
of the Committee on Schools, Fire, Police 
and Civil Service, but this was emphat- 
ically disproved. 

ORGANIZATION METHODS. 

As operated, there is no real repre- 
sentation. The members are confined to 
the duties of paying dues and assess- 
ments, and keeping quiet. The organiza- 
tion is un-American and undemocratic, 
and places the individual member who 
has accumulated a slight competence for 
his declining years at the mercy of a 
small coterie of men who, as a result, 
have saddled him with claims which may 
wipe out the savings of a lifetime. 

TRIAL BOARD. 

During the year 1912 the Commission, 
or trial boards appointed by it, heard 
approximately 275 cases brought against 
members of the Police Department, more 



than one-half of all charges brought 
against employes in the classified service. 
Of this number, fifty-six officers and 
men were discharged from the force and 
the service of the City of Chicago, on 
charges ranging from inefficiency to 
drunkenness and disorderly conduct and 
maltreatment of citizens, soliciting of 
bribes, immorality, assault, cowardice 
and rape. In the vast majority of cases, | 
the United Police employed regular, and 
special counsel to defend these cases. It 
is not here intended to cast reflection 
upon the attorneys retained by the or- 
ganization, nor does the Commission be- \ 
lieve that they were in any way party 
to the "frame-ups," the "fixing"' of wit- : 
nesses and the use of "influence" so com- i 
mon in police cases. 

The vast majority of the members of j 
the Police Department are sober, indus- ! 
trious and law-abiding citizens. Most j 
of the cases brought before the trial j 
board are the result of over-indulgence '\ 
in intoxicating liquor. Nearly ail so i 
•charged have "trial board" records. Why i 
ninety-five per cent of the department 
permit themselves to be taxed to save 
the jobs for derelicts and help them 
eventually to share in the pension fund, 
is a mystery. Besides, the amount an- 
nually collected is in excess of ail nec- 
essary requirements, and naturally tends 
to extravagance, if not graft. It may 
be here noted that the recording secre- \ 
tary of the organization, discharged from I 
the force for palpable neglect of duty, I 
has continued to draw his salary of $50 
per month since his discharge. 

CIVIL SUITS. 



The service rendered members of the 
organization in civil suits which may 
be said to come under the third head 
of avowed objects, namely, protecting 
members "from injustice and imposi- 
tions," has been practically a negligible 
quantity. The Corporation Counsel's of- 
fice, though not required by law so to { 
do, defends and, for at least the past 
ten years, has defended members of thei 
department in civil suits arising from the 
performance of police duty. This is as 
it should be. The City of Chirago should 
protect its public servants in the per- 
formance of the duties assigned to them 
and should bear the cost thereof. This 
does not mean that the city should be 
obligated to respond in damages for a: 
usurpation of police power, but merely 
that it should furnish legal assistance 
to those members of the force charged 



January 20, 1913. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



3287 



with civil liability growing out of the 
enforcement of laws and ordinances. 

PROTECTION TO POLICE. 

That the individual members of the 
Police Department should be protected 
from injustice and imposition whether 
through civil or criminal proceedings, 
or on charges brought under the civil 
service law, the Commission admits. 

It suggests, as a matter for consider- 
ation, that the City Law Department, 
under direction of ttie Corporation Coun- 
sel, continue its practice of defending 
members of the department in cases aris- 
ing out of honest performance of police 
duty. 

It further suggests that a member of 
the City Law Department, satisfactory 
to the Board of Trustees of the Police 
Pension Fund, or selected by any other 
plan that will secure desired results, be 
designated to represent the interests of 
ail members of the force on charges be- 
fore the Commission, to the end that 
every member of the department may be 
given a full and fair trial before the 
Commission or the trial board. 

It further suggests that consideration 
be given to a plan whereby the Trustees 
of the Pension Fund might enlarge their 
functions and protect members of the 
department in civil and' criminal suits 
where the city authorities deem their 
powers exhausted. 

These suggestions are made merely for 
future consideration, and not in the 
nature of recommendations. 

In view of the fact that the United 
Police has dissolved and ceases to exist, 
the Commission's recommendations are 
but few, and are as follows: 

RECOMMENDATIONS. 

That this report be referred to an ap- 
propriate committee and by it to a sub- 
committee to report a workable plan 
covering the following: 

(a) The defense, at the expense 
of the city and under the direction of 
the Corporation Counsel, of members 
of the Department of Police charged 
m civil suits with an abuse of police 
power. 

(b) The defense in a like manner 
of members of the force charged crim- 
inally, where such charge of crimin- 
ality arises out of the honest discharge 
of police duty. 



(c) The safeguarding of the rights 
of members of the force brought on 
charges before the Civil Service Com- 
mission or a trial board appointed by 
it. 

(d) The preparation of a rule or 
ordinance v;hich will prevent the or- 
ganization within the Department of 
Police, of a society, body or association 
along the lines of or analogous to the 
LTnited- Police of Chicago.

A track elevation ordinance cover- 
ing the above crossing has been ac- 
cepted by the Englewood Connecting 
Eailway Company and work will in all 
probability be commenced upon the 
elevation 'in the very near future. Be- 
yond that it is the opinion of our op- 
erating department that a man on 
the ground would be better able to 
warn the public and protect- the sit- 
uation than if he Avere located in a 
tower. 

In consideration of these facts we 
desire to obtain permission to station 
flagmen on the ground as above in- 
dicated in lieu of crossing gates for 
as long a time as the safety of the 
public demands. 

Yours truly,

In view of the conditions stated in 
the foregoing letter, I recommend that 
permission be granted to the Pennsyl-

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City 
of Chicago in City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Finance, who 
have had under consideration an order 
concerning vacation periods and periods 
of sick leave of city employees for the 
current year, having had the same un- 
der advisement, beg leave to report and 
recommend the passage of the order 
submitted herewith: 

Ordered, That the executives of the 
various departments of the City of Chi- 
cago arrange and designate vacation 
periods aifd periods for sick leave for 
the current year by providing vacations 
of two weeks, for all employes, except 
those in tiie skilled labor and labor ser- 
vice classes, who have been engaged in 
the city's service for a period of at 
least one year prior to such vacation. 
Such vacation period, if thought advis- 
able by the respective department heads, 
may be divided into two periods; and 
be it further 

Ordered, That all employes in the 
skilled labor and labor service classes 
shall be given hj the respective depart- 
ment heads a vacation of eleven work 
days, provided such employe has been 
in the city's service for one year previ- 
ous to such vacation without more than 
thirty consecutive days' intermission; 
and provided, further, that all employes, 
except those in skilled labor and laoor 
service classes, may be given leave of 
absence by their respective heads for 
periods not exceeding fifteen days in the 
aggregate during any fi^scal year on ac- 
count of sickness or other cause for ab- 
sence, which may be considered by the 
department head a sufficient and legiti- 
mate excuse for the employe's failure 
to be present and in attendance to his 
duties, but the reasons for the absence 
and the good faith of the employe in 
making application for such leave shall 
be sliown to the department head by 
such reasonable evidence as he may re- 



quire, either by a physician's certificate, 
personal affidavit or other means. And, 
provided further, that whenever a leave 
of absence on account of sickness for 
over three (3) days is applied for, such 
application must be made to the head 
of the department in writing within 
said three (3) days, accompanied by a 
certificate from a regular physician 
stating the nature and severity of such 
sickness. Vacation and sick leave 
periods may be combined in the event 
of such long continued illness of the 
employe, as may, in the judgment of 
the department head, warrant such a 
course. 

Be it further ordered, That there shall 
be exempt from the efi'ect and operation 
of this order the executives of the Board 
of Education, Public Library, Munici- 
pal Tuberculosis Sanitarium, Law De- 
partment and all active members of the

tible water taxes, having had the same 
under advisement, beg leave to report 
and recommend the passage of the fol- 
lowing order : 

Ordered, That the following amounts, 
due the City of Chicago on water claims, 
hereto attached (and made a part of 
this order ) , be and the same are hereby 
decreased in full, from and upon the 
books of the Bureau of Water for the 



reasons indicated and stated in said list 
of claims. 

And the claims to be decreased are as 
follows : 

Thomas E. Burton, 4931-41 Indiana 
avenue, $5.62. Reason — This claim came 
to the Corporation Counsel's office too 
late for presentation into the Probate 
Court. 

Andrew Begg, 2130-40 Wabash avenue, 
$5.63. Reason — We have not been able 
to locate this party and to our best 
knowledge and belief he is dead. 

INIrs. Septima H. Buchanan, 4732 Madi- 
son avenue, $7.75. Reason — The bank- 
ruptcy estate of the above person was 
closed before this claim was presented 
for filing and there were no assets any-/ 
way. 

M. J. Strulynsky, 1712 Austin avenue, 
$11.00. Reason — We have not been able 
to locate this party. 

C. E. Hawkins, trustee, 1701 Morse

tax bill and we have not been able to 
locate the real consumer of the water. 

John Jenkins & Thomas Keevan, 
5721-23 South boulevard, $2.50. Rea- 
son — This bill is too small to warrant, 
expenditure of court costs. 

Hamler Dilks Boiler & Tank Works,* 
3401-5 South Hoyne avenue, $13.13. 
Reason — This concern has gone out of 
business and we do not know whether 
they have gone bankrupt, etc. 

M. F. White, 1542-48 Lunt avenue,' 
$5.63. Reason — We have made several 
attempts to collect this bill and bill is', 
too small to warrant expenditure o^ 
court costs. r 

W. B. Messelman, 1438-40 Howard 
street, $5.00. Reason — We have never 
been able to locate this party and claim 
is too small to warrant the expenditure 
of court costs. 

Occupant, 8741 Winchester avenue, 
$14.00. Reason — We have never been^: 
able to find out who occupied said prem-" - 
ises or who consumed the water.

port : 

Office of tue Comptroller, [ 
Chicago, January 8, 1913. \ 

Hon. Eugene Block, Ohairman Gommit- 
tee on Local Transportation, City. 

Dear Sir — In leply to your request of 
recent date, permit me to state that the 
auditors of the street railway companies 
are selected by the company and the 
City under the terms of Section 29 of 
the' Chicago City Railway Company's or- 
dinance, and Section 30, of the Chicago 
Railways Company's ordinance, reciting 
as follows: 

•'There' shall be also an audit of the 
accounts of the company covering all 
receipts and expenditures for the year 
ending on the thirty-first day of Jan- 
uary next preceding, and a formal 
written report by public accountants 
selected by the City and the com- 
pan}^, the expenses of such avidit and 
report to be paid out of the gross re- 
ceipts of the company, as an operating 
expense." 

These auditors were, therefore, the 
joint selection of the companies and my 
predecessor, and by the City's authority 
are on only one payroll to which the 
City, in any accountiiig under the terms 
of the traction ordinances, contributes. 

In reference to the keeping of two sets 
of books, this matter was reported by 
the firm of Price, Waterhovise & Co., 
chartered accountants, in two special 
audits, the receipt of which was ac- 
knowledged April 14. 1909, to the City 
Council and made public by His Honor, 
the ]\Iayor. 



The ''joint account" books contain the 
accounts relating to capital, earnings 
and expenses and all accounts pertaining 
to the division of the net earnings be- 
tween the City and the company. The; 
individual, or so-called "private books" 
contain the accounts of the corporation 
itself, viz.: stock and bonds and the dis-| 
position of the companies' 45 per cent 
after division of the earnings with the 
City. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) John E. Traeger, 



Comptroller.

cars have a seating capacity of only 28 
to 30 persons, while the large double 
tnick cars in use by the surface com- 
panies have a seating capacity of from 
40 to 5G persons each, and the respec- 
tive standing rooms in these cars is in 
proportion to the seating room; and 

Whekeas, The service rendered by the 
street railway companies is such that 
there is great need for seating capacity 
in excess of that now afforded and the 
small single truck cars are insufferably 
crowded at times; and 

Whereas, The replacement of these 
209 small single truck cars by large 
cars of the type specified in the trac- 
tion ordinances would improve the sit- 
uation in proportion to the increase in 
seating capacity that would be afforded 
thereby ; and 

Whereas, The traction ordinances of 
1907 (and the ordinances of similar 
character passed subsequently) specify 
that such small single truck cars are 
only allowed to be retained in operation 
until the Board of Supervising Engi- 
neers otherwise directs; now, therefore, 
bo it 

Resolved, That the Board of Super- 
vising Engineers be and they are hereby 
directed to report to this Council why, 
in the light of such situation, these 209 
single cars have been allowed to be 
kept into service and why they have 
not been replaced with the large double 
truck ears of the general character speci- 
fied in the traction ordinances.
